CREATE TO DONATE YYC
(For kids and the kid at heart)

Final week of our contest has begun

Deadline May 31, 2020 at midnight!

For the final week of our Create to Donate contest, we have decided to open it up to all ages. So kids and kids-at-heart alike, impress us with your sidewalk art or inspirational message! The final week of our contest has now begun and the details are below! Tell your friends and family to check it out as well.

We started this contest as a way to give Calgarians a means of giving back while being stuck at home and maintaining physical distance. In weeks 1, 2 and 3 we received lots of great submissions from kids all around Calgary, including great thank you cards, acrostic poems, and recycled art. Winners have been notified and this page will be updated with their submissions. The Week 1 and 2 winners have received their prizes and we'll be visiting the week 3 winners soon!
