THQ uDraw Your City Contest = Best Prize Package Ever?

I want to give a shout-out to the "uDraw Your City" contest for kids because the geniuses over at THQ have put together a fun and creative giveaway with perhaps the best prize package I have ever seen for kids and their parents.

From September 1st to October 1st, kids from age 6 to 17 (in other words, elementary, middle and high school kids) are invited to create a piece of artwork that represents what their hometown or home city means to them, for a chance to win a prize package worth more than $25,000, which includes:

  • $10,000 cash prize that the winner can choose to apply toward a college scholarship.
  • $10,000 to the winner’s school of choice to help support the school’s art program.
  • An HDTV.
  • A video game console (Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or Wii).
  • A uDraw GameTablet.
  • A host of uDraw games for the innovative device.
  • A Gamestop gift card.
See what I mean? You've got money for their school now, money to use college later, and just plain fun for the winning kid, all included in that prize package!

Whoever put that package together really deserves some kudos. It's clear that THQ is a company that not only markets products for kids but actually gets kids, and has combined education, creativity, productivity and play together for a contest and prize package that will appeal to them (while also making their parents happy with that educational funding!).

Seriously, ya'll, I am not being compensated in any way for this post, I have no ties to THQ, but I am a big fan now.

Don't know what "uDraw" and the "uDraw Game Tablet" are?  Watch this (very cool) video:

Remember, kids can enter their original artwork from September 1st to October 1st. THQ will announce the winner on November 11th. For more information, head to the uDraw You City contest website
