What a neat idea from Honey Maid. The company created a new online initiative called Made Co. to help kids get their ideas made. Made Co. is a unique new online contest for kids ages 6-12 that can win opportunities to have their ideas brought to life with the help of industry experts.
It has been going on for months and there is only 13 days left so check it out. The goal was to inspire the little ones to learn and create under the guidance of real world professionals in their chosen fields.
Through Made Co., Honey Maid will partner with several experts from a variety of industries including clothing designers, authors and game and toy makers. These industry experts will review idea submissions and select one grand prize winning idea per project to be professionally created, with the help of the winning applicant.
One of the current projects on the site now includes a chance to win a trip to attend a writer’s workshop (for a winning child with her/her parent) with My Weird School book series author, Dan Gutman, at Harper Collins Publishers headquarters in New York City. The winner will work with Dan and Harper Collins to produce ten copies of the book that he or she has conceived.
Honey Maid sent me a brochure and a gift card to Target so my little one could purchase a few items to help her create something special. Of course my author in the making chose the writing assignment (see the books below – can you tell we love My Weird School???) Armed with her pencils and notebooks she wrote a short story! She was very excited about the whole experience.
