Deadline looms for SPCA’s kids T-shirt contest

Young B.C. artists up to 13 years of age have until midnight June 26 to submit original artwork for the 2011 Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause Kids T-shirt Contest

With the deadline for its art contest just weeks away, the BC SPCA urges all “Pablo Petcassos” to get their creative juices fired up to help animals across the province.

Young B.C. artists up to 13 years of age have until midnight June 26 to submit original artwork for the 2011 Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause Kids T-shirt Contest.

The winner’s artwork will be featured on the front of all 10,000-plus Paws for a Cause participant T-shirts this year – not just on youth shirts, as in previous years.

“Everyone who participates in Paws for a Cause all across the province will be wearing these T-shirts,” BC SPCA development director Denise Meade said in a release. “Alone, that’s pretty special, but the winning young artist of this contest will also be helping homeless and abandoned animals.”

Contestants are invited to submit their original artwork online, then customize a fundraising page with details about why their artwork should win.

The artist will then be guided through a step-by-step process emailing friends and family members and asking them to vote for their masterpiece.

One dollar will equal one vote. The artist who collects the most online donations wins, with the winner being announced June 27.

Each entry that raises a minimum of $15 also qualifies for a free one-year Kids Club membership.

In addition to the grand prize, honourable mentions will be given to two other outstanding artists, who will receive a goodie bag with a selection of official BC SPCA gear.

Visit spca.bc.ca/walk for contest rules and regulations.

Paws for a Cause will be held Sept. 11 in 37 communities across the province.
