Whiteside Warrior Wellness T-Shirt Art Contest

Here is the information for you and your child about the Whiteside Warrior Wellness T-Shirt Art Contest:

On an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of white paper, create a drawing that illustrates what it means to be physically fit.  If your drawing is chosen as the winner, it will be used as the art on the t-shirts for our Whiteside Warrior Wellness 5k Run/Walk on April 22nd!  All runners/walkers and volunteers will be wearing t-shirts with the winning artwork---how exciting is that?!

Drawing Guidelines:

     *Make your drawing as LARGE as possible on the paper

     *Use ONLY black marker or colored pencil to create your drawing and please keep drawings simple with NO shading - the drawing will not be in color on the t-shirts.  SOLID, defined lines are BEST!
