Voorhees, New Jersey (PressExposure) July 31, 2008 -- KIWI Magazine has partnered with Hero Nutritional to launch, effective immediately, the âMy Kid, My Heroâ Contest, sponsored by May Media Group, LLC.
Parents are invited to nominate their children as their âheroesâ by submitting true stories of their childrenâs acts of kindness and receive the chance to win some great prizes. Entry into the contest requires submission of an original, 400-word essay describing the child and why he/she is being nominated as a hero. âHeroâ is defined, for the purposes of the contest, as a child who has performed good deeds during the last year to help others and/or the community. Parents may nominate more than one child, with one submission allowed per child.
Submissions will be judged by representatives of KIWI and Hero Nutritional â the manufacturers of Yummi Bears childrenâs vitaminsâon the positive nature of the good deeds, impact of the actions, inspirational value, and statement credibility.
Prizes for the three nominees with the highest scores include savings bonds up to $500, one-year subscriptions to KIWI Magazine, and supplies of Yummi Bears.
The âMy Kid, My Heroâ Contest officially ends December 31, 2008. Entry forms are available online at [http://www.kiwimagonline.com/contests/Hero/].
