Shine’s Earth Day Contest: Submit Your Kid’s Artwork, Win Fun Stuff!

ThinkstockHere at Shine, we love celebrating the Earth--after all it is our only home and it is up to us to protect it. In honor of our beautiful planet, Shine has partnered with BBC Home Entertainment to help raise awareness this Earth Day and have some fun while doing it! Send us photos of your child's most creative, original, and eco-friendly Earth Day art projects and, in turn, we have some exciting prizes to give to you. You and your family could win earth-lover loot like BBC's newest hit series Frozen Planet, a Planet Earth Limited Edition Globe, as well some DVDs of BBC's best-selling nature programs. (See full prize descriptions below.)

Here's what you need to do: Get out your art supplies and recyclables and have your child create an impressive art project (this can be a home or school project), then upload a photo of your kid's completed work of art to the Shine Earth Day Contest Flickr group or post it to your blog on Shine with "Shine Earth Day" in the title by midnight EST, Tuesday, April 24th. We will select the three winners based on adherence to theme of celebrating earth day (50%), originality (25%), creativity (25%).
