Kids, help us trim our pages with the holiday spirit. It’s time for our annual Keiki Kalikimaka drawing contest. Design an ornament and you’ll have a chance at our prizes of $100, $75 and $25 cash. We’ll select a daily finalist, to be printed on Page 1 of the features section, beginning Nov. 25. On Christmas Eve we’ll run all 29 finalists and announce the randomly chosen winners.
The contest is open to kids up to age 12. All entries must be between 5 and 8 inches wide. No 3-D entries (don’t glue on any objects). We must receive your drawing in the mail — no faxes or emails. Ornaments cannot be returned. Attach the entry form found here. The last day to enter is Dec. 9.
