Aspiring artists get shot at shopping spree in Exchange contest

DALLAS – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service and Crayola are inviting military children to show their colorful side for a chance at a $250 shopping spree in the Crayola Coloring Contest.

Authorized shoppers 16-years-old and younger can go to www.shopmyexchange.com/Community/patriotfamily to download and print the official contest illustration.

“We know there are some budding young artists out there and we can’t wait to see their entries,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “If the contests we’ve had for children in the past are any indicator, there is no doubt the competition will be tough in this one.”

The “Crayola Coloring Contest” runs from July 27-Aug. 25. Entries will be judged on creativity and skill level. One winner in each age group (under 4, 5-8, 9-12 and 12-16) will receive a $250 Crayola shopping spree. Complete rules can be found at www.shopmyexchange.com/Community/patriotfamily.
