Liberty Bottleworks Launches New Kids Bottles with Back to School Art Contest
Winning design will be sold to benefit art program at winner's school
Liberty Bottleworks is launching a new line of 16 oz. kids bottles, and to celebrate the new kid-specific design, the company is hosting a Back to School Art Contest to give one aspiring artist a chance for their work to be featured on a limited edition Liberty bottle.
The Back to School Art Contest began Monday, July 9 and entries from young artists ages 5-13 - no help from parents allowed -- will be taken through July 20. The winning design will be printed on a limited run of Liberty's new 16 oz. kids bottles and sold on www.libertybottles.com and through participating retailers. The company will donate $7 from each bottle sold to the art program at the winning student's school.
"These new kids bottles have been a lot of fun for our illustrators to design, and we know there are some talented young people out there who can do us one better," said Liberty Co-Founder Ryan Clark. "Plus, we know art programs around the country are struggling to survive and every little bit helps, so it's a chance for the winning artist to make a real difference at their school."
The contest opened at 12:01 a.m. on July 9 and submissions will be accepted through July 20. Entries will be posted on Facebook (www.facebook.com/libertybottleworks) and judged based on the following criteria:
- The number of likes an entry receives on Liberty's Facebook page
- Best design as decided by Liberty's art staff
- Relevance of Back-to-School themed design
Artwork must be no larger than 8.64" wide by 2.27" tall and must be original. Artists (or their parents, on their behalf!) can enter by submitting to the Liberty Bottleworks Facebook page with the artist's age included in the caption. Entries may also be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org to be posted on the Liberty Facebook page.
Votes will be accepted through July 20 and five finalists will be named on July 21. The winning design will be the one with the most "likes" by July 31, and their design will go into production immediately using Liberty's one-of-a-kind cylindrical digital printer to transfer their art onto the Made-in-the-USA bottles.
The new line of kids bottles from Liberty boast the same features found on the company's 24 and 32 oz. models - BPA-free, recycled aluminum construction, food grade inner coating, tapered neck for easy pouring and dent resistant design - but come in a smaller package. The 16 oz. version will feature Liberty's standard, patent-pending quarter turn cap, while the smaller, soon-to-be-released 12 oz. bottle will come standard with the new sport cap, which is spill proof and easy for younger children to use.
