August 1, 2012

One lucky artist will win a $20,000 Gerber Life College Scholarship

Gerber Life College Scholarship ContestAs your child heads back to school or maybe starts school for the first time, you probably wonder what he or she may be when they grow up. It’s fun to imagine the possibilities: athlete, writer, photographer, engineer, dentist. Now’s the time for your child to grab some crayons or colored pencils and draw a picture of what they want to be when they grow up, and enter for a chance to win a $20,000 Gerber Life College Plan. Entering the Gerber Life College Scholarship Art Contest is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

1.    If you have a child between the ages of 3 and 8 years old, have him or her draw a picture that answers the question: “What do I want to be when I grow up?”
2.    Go online between August 1 and August 31 and log on to Gerber Life’s Facebook page to upload your child’s drawing.
3.    Share your child’s drawing with friends and family on Facebook to have them vote for their favorite entry. Voting begins Aug. 1 and runs through Sept. 15, 2012.
The 20 drawings with the highest number of votes will go before a panel of judges to select the Grand Prize winner who will receive a $20,000 Gerber Life College Plan (value at 10 year maturity). The 19 runners-up will each receive a $100 gift card. All winners will be announced at the end of September.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but your child’s drawing could be worth $20,000!
