Giveaway: Crayola Solar Powered Crayons & Recycled Markers (5 Winners) [CLOSED]

For back-to-school 2010, Crayola is proud to announce that you will be seeing Crayola crayons, markers, and colored pencils in specially marked packages to signify that they are made a greener way. These crayons will be made with solar energy and the markers will be made of recycled bottle caps. There will be a variety of products to choose from, including several types of washable markers.

Through June 28th, your child can enter to be one of the first ten children to be on the Crayola Green Team. Each team member will be invited to the official opening of the 15-acre solar farm in Easton, Pennsylvania for a VIP tour and will receive a box of 64 Crayola green crayons personalized with each child's name. Public voting for the best pictures and concepts will take place July 6th through 21st.

All you need to do to enter is to submit a drawing by your child that "how they imagine a green world or what they are doing to help the planet, at home, at school or in their community." You can do so by uploading the photo to Crayola on Facebook. The ten winners will each receive a trip for one child and one adult, that includes transportation, 2-nights lodging and meals, a VIP tour, admission into the The Crayola Factory discovery center, $500 worth of Crayola products for the child's school, and more. Please read the official contest rules for details.
