TRUMBULL CO. Artwork is sought from kids for directory
Three grand-prize winners will be selected.
WARREN -- Young artists from the Trumbull County area are urged to put their creative talents to work for the opportunity to have their artwork published in the 2002 Trumbull Countywide Sprint Yellow Pages.
Creative Kids, a community program developed by Sprint Yellow Pages six years ago, is designed to let the creative spirit of children shine in the classroom and throughout their community directories by encouraging children in first through third grades to submit original artwork.
The program is implemented through elementary school art classes.
Pupils are encouraged to create artwork representing a scene from their favorite book, depicting themselves as a book character, showing their favorite reading partner (parent, friend, grandparent), or illustrating their favorite spot to read.
"This exciting program offers first- through third-grade students the opportunity to display their creativity and contribute to their community's Yellow Pages," said Darcie Miller, Sprint Yellow Pages spokesperson. "The vast array of drawings we receive are representative of the creative talents possessed by the community's youth."
Three grand-prize winners, selected randomly, will have their drawings displayed on the first yellow page of the 2002 Trumbull Countywide Sprint Yellow Pages.
In addition, they will be honored at a school presentation, where they will receive art kits and a framed replica of the first yellow pages featuring their work.
All other drawings received will be published throughout the Yellow Pages, as space permits.
