Hey, Hancock County Kids:
Watch your ideas and creativity grow in Dani’s Dreams Outdoor Education Center’s annual T-shirt design and essay contest.
The theme for the event is “Watch ‘Em Grow!” and this year all Hancock County classrooms or Scout groups are challenged to compete in Dani’s Dreams Seed Starting Challenge now underway. There are now TWO WAYS for you to show your talents.
1. DRAW A PICTURE using the theme for the front of T-shirts. Your drawing could bring Dani’s Dreams to life on T-shirts for the fifth annual memorial walk/run Aug. 4. If your picture is chosen, you will receive a free T-shirt and $50 and your name will be on every shirt. You will be introduced Aug. 4 at the beginning of the walk/run at New Palestine High School.
2. WRITE AN ESSAY based on the theme “How Can I Help My Community Grow?” Entries from all ages will be accepted. Winners will be chosen in the following groups: grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Winners in each age category will receive a free T-shirt and $25. Money raised at this event will go to fund the Dani’s Dreams Outdoor Education Center, open to all students in Hancock County.
Turn in your drawing or essay to your teacher by April 18.
Entries will be picked up at each school April 19 or they can be dropped off at Zion Lutheran School. The best of the T-shirt designs and essays will be on display for voting during the Earth Day Dedication Event at Dani’s Dream Outdoor Education Center May 5 when we will determine the winner of our Watch ‘Em Grow seed starting challenge. Come and see the students’ demonstrations, create crafts and get a sneak preview of the new Go Green Discovery Center, sponsored by the Hancock County Community Foundation, scheduled for construction this spring.
