The Company Store Launches a Kids’ Design Contest to Benefit Homeless Children

The Company Store is celebrating its 100th anniversary with the launch of their Kids’ Design Contest! This program is geared toward inspiring creativity while supporting art education and charitable work among America’s young people. Kids aged 12 and under are invited to submit their original artwork to The Company Store. The winning piece will be transformed into a comforter print for The Company Store’s ongoing Buy One, Give One Comforter Donation Program, in which a new comforter is donated to a homeless child for every comforter sold.

Submissions are now being accepted on the Facebook page for Company Kids (, the children’s division of The Company Store. Voting will be open to the general public beginning March 28th through April 22nd. In addition to the grand prize of having their artwork made into a comforter, the three artists with the most votes will receive gift cards from Company Kids.

If you’ve got a little artist in your family, I encourage you to have them enter the Kids’ Design Contest! This also makes a great project for art classes, scouting groups, and other children’s organizations.

DISCLOSURE: I will receive a complimentary child’s backpack as a thank-you for sharing this initiative on this blog. No financial compensation was provided.
