Running out of ideas for things to do with the kiddos? Here's a craft project that might win your child a $500 Borders gift card as well as an additional $500 gift card for their school library. Borders, the official retailer for the 2010 National Book Festival, is hosting this bookmark designing contest for kids.
To enter, kids can download an official entry form at www.borders.com/online/store/MediaView_bookmarkcontest, design their bookmark image right on the page, and turn the form into their local Borders store. Two winners from each store will be awarded a $25 gift card and advance to the state competition. Then, two winning entries from each state will advance to the national competition, where one grand prize winner will be selected. In addition to a grand prize winner, there will be a second and third place winner, who will each receive two $250 gift cards and two $100 gift cards, respectively. Contest ends 7/31/10--so now you've got a project for the week.
