We love to have special events to engage the children of our participating families. HMHI has two such contests this month. After all, we know that it’s the little extra things we do to support our kids that brighten their lives and their days these dark winter months. Besides, Valentine’s Day is approaching, and we need to be ready for it!
The first contest is just for fun. Children from our program can guess how many candy hearts are in a jar. The child who comes closest to the correct number in the candy jar will receive a gift grab bag. This contest’s easy to enter. And, simply for entering, the participating children will receive a special valentine.
The second contest requires some creative self-expression. The contest asks our children to write a poetic expression to a loved one entitled “I Love You Because…”. The writing contest winner will receive a $10.00 gift certificate from Subway. We appreciate Subway’s certificate donation in sponsorship of the poetry contest.
All entries will be submitted by February 8. We’re looking forward to reading the entries and being inspired by the sincerity and the poetry of our HMHI children. The winners will be announced February 12–just in time for Valentine’s Day!
