STAMFORD, Conn., Jan. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — As we enter a new year, there’s one thing that remains the same, parents will continue looking for ways to keep their kids engaged and inspired at-home. From DIY crafts to games and virtual activities, parents have tried it all and are still left seeking more. Which is why this winter, Juicy Juice, the iconic kids’ juice, is helping parents foster creativity within their little ones through the launch of the Happy Artist Contest.

To participate, parents can submit their child’s drawing of what makes them 100% happy, like a favorite activity, a beloved pet or an element of nature. Here’s how it works:

  • Starting January 6, parents can visit JuicyJuice.com/HappyArtist to download and print the contest design template.
  • Parents can talk to their child about what makes them 100% happy and have them create their own depiction of it in the designated template.
  • Through February 28, parents can submit their little ones’ artwork on the contest website by uploading an image.
  • Then, a panel of judges will collaborate and select the winners based on criteria including design and technique, originality and consistency with the 100% happy theme.
  • Winners will be announced on March 15 on JuicyJuice.com/HappyArtist.
  • Participants can visit JuicyJuice.com for official rules and regulations.

Four grand prize winners will have the chance to see their artwork featured on Juicy Juice packs and receive a $500 gift card to go towards art supplies and empowering creativity at home. An additional ten first prize winners will receive a $200 gift card to upgrade their at-home art materials. Some tips for little artists’ parents to know:

  • Stay inside the lines – the template is sized accordingly to Juicy Juice’s packaging.
  • Markers, crayons, colored pencils are all accepted, and the more color the better!
  • Artists of any ability and skill level are welcome to participate.
  • Judging is based on two age group categories: 2 – 6 and 7 – 10.
