-A A +A

Winning design will appear on T-shirt


Children in fourth through sixth grades in Los Alamos are being invited to submit T-shirt logo designs for the upcoming 2013 Los Alamos CROP Walk and Turkey Trot. Creative young artists have competed in the past two years, with last year’s winner being Sarah Worley.

The Los Alamos CROP Hunger Walk and Turkey Trot Logo Contest is open to fourth through sixth graders whose family lives or works in Los Alamos County. The winning design will be used as the official T-shirt logo for the walk on Nov. 24. In addition to the honor of having their logo design printed on hundreds of T-shirts, the winner will receive a free T-shirt, a small gift and public recognition.

The CROP Walk and Turkey Trot raises money for hunger organizations to meet the needs of those in poverty, or in disaster relief situations around the world and in the United States. Twenty-five percent of the money raised at the Los Alamos walk/trot will go to support L.A. Cares, our local food bank. Walkers or runners can designate the remaining 75 percent of what they raise to their own denomination’s hunger and relief agency. People can go online to sign up to walk or to run at hunger.cwsglobal.org/site.

The entry guidelines for the logo contest state that all entries should be drawn in black ink on plain white paper. The lines should be thick enough to reproduce properly on a T-shirt. Entries are not to be colored in, or they may be disqualified from the competition. All entries should be no larger than 8.5 by 11 inches. Somewhere prominent on the design there should appear the name “Los Alamos CROP Hunger Walk & Turkey Trot 2013.” The artist’s name, current grade, address, phone number, parent or guardian’s printed name and parental signature should be written lightly, but legibly in pencil on the back of the picture. Also include T-shirt size.

The entry deadline for the contest is Friday Oct. 25 at 5 p.m. Artists’ submissions should be put in a large envelope, not folded, labeled “Los Alamos CROP Walk & Turkey Trot Logo Contest, c/o Lynn Wysocki-Smith or Elisa Enriquez” and delivered to Village Arts (216 DP Road in Los Alamos), or Warm Hearts Yarn (13 Sherwood Blvd. in White Rock) by 5 p.m. Oct. 25.

For questions or more information call Lynn Wysocki-Smith at 661-9619, or Elisa Enriquez at 690-1138.
