Announcing our Evolution & Art Contest!

Our awesome new contest is for kids age 4 to 12 who love drawing, science, animals, or weirdness. In other words, everybody.

We're asking kids to choose an animal alive today, and then imagine how it might evolve if it were in a different - and possibly funky or weird -- environment. What might happen to polar bears after a couple hundred thousand years if, say, snow were green? How might they evolve to adapt? Draw us your evolved animal and voila, you're in!

Every kid who enters will get a certificate of appreciation signed by Charlie himself. The winners in each age category will get prizes: an interview on this blog, a book of their choice, a fancy-shmancy Certificate of Greatness, and bragging rights forever.

Oh, and we've got a great panel of judges including both kids and adults.

So sharpen your markers and your imaginations, kids! We can't wait to see your entries.

More info and instructions on how to enter here.

Dealine is November 15th.
No purchase necessary.
(I hate even having to say "no purchase necessary." What kind of putz would make a purchase necessary?)

  1. I just looked through the 4-6 year old instructions. What a great mini intro to Evolution! My 5 year old will definitely be entering.
