Looking for tips for creating a great entry?
First a few basic tips. Essays should be 250 words or less. Photos should clearly show your child being independent on their own. And videos should be under 2 minutes, both telling and showing how your child is being independent.
With all entries, we want to see how your child is really growing, changing, and stepping up to take on this challenging time on their own.
Let’s get to the rules.
We’re not big fans of rules, but, in order to have our contests, we have to provide some guidelines to you. Please read the following for the Independence Challenge Contest.
No purchase necessary. Making a purchase will not increase your chances of winning. The Contest is open only to legal residents of the United States who at the time of entry are eighteen (18) years of age or older.
