About the Contest:
The contest is open to children ages 1-13. They are to create a design that best captures the "Spirit of a Green Halloween" using the ChicoBag™ design template and their medium of choice. Winning designs will have their artwork printed on next year's ChicoBag™ Trick-or-Treat bag as well as cash prizes and eco-goodies! ChicoBag™ will donate 10 percent of the proceeds from each bag directly to Green Halloween®.
Entries can be sent via email (jpeg or pdf format) to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed (print format) to: ChicoBag Company, c/o Halloween Contest, 349 Huss Drive, Chico, CA 95928. Entrants must submit a signed agreement form which includes the artist and the parents name, age and contact information.
Click here for further details and to view last year's bag. I have samples of both and they're too cute. Nice and sturdy. They even include an inner "pocket" for small items (keys, cell, important candies, etc) I'll be sure to post pics after we put them to good use.
About the 2010 Halloween Bag:
The winning design from last year's contest is printed on the 2010 Halloween bag by ChicoBag™. Each bag is made from lightweight, machine washable material and holds up to 25 pounds of goodies. The bags can be used year after year, and once the goodies are all gobbled up, the bags can be stuffed back into their pouches for storage. The 2010 Halloween bag is available in two adorable designs and can be purchased at http://www.chicobag.com/ or at select retailers nationwide.
