Sponsors sought for coloring contest, chalk art festival
Local Cheddar and Serve Daily will present the third annual Spring Community Coloring Book Contest. This has been a fun and exciting way for businesses to get local residents of southern Utah County inside their doors.
Prior coloring book contests have ended with a fun party for all the entrants. The spring contest has had a chalk art festival and the fall contest has had the Turkey Bowl. For this year’s spring contest, Spanish Fork City has partnered with Local Cheddar and Serve Daily to bring the chalk art festival to the library in Spanish Fork. The event will be held on June 2 and 3. This partnership will bring thousands of locals out to the chalk art festival and have many more local artists chalking the park.
A total of 10,000 copies of this year’s spring coloring books will be printed and distributed at local Easter egg hunts in Springville, Spanish Fork, Salem, Payson, Santaquin and Genola. They will also be handed out at local elementary schools by their PTA’s and at select local businesses.
Each page of the coloring book will feature a design to color, a local business and an awesome prize for kids of all ages to win. The back of each page will feature information, promotions, offers and/ or coupons from the sponsoring local business. Kids will be able to color the pages in the coloring book and then take each page to its sponsoring business for a chance to win awesome prizes. Winners of the coloring contest will be chosen by the sponsoring business and announced at the chart art festival on June 3.
You can feature your business in the coloring books and get many local families through your door. Sponsorship of a coloring page starts at $450 and includes having your business featured in 10,000 coloring books, free design of your page, a prize to offer and an optional booth at the chalk art festival.
This year we are also offering Bubble Bingo spots in the coloring book contest. Bubble Bingo spots will feature up to 12 local businesses on the back cover of the coloring book. Locals will have to get each bingo spot signed off by the sponsoring local business. Each Bubble Bingo sponsorship is $200.
