Ferndale, WA (PRWEB) March 18, 2011
Wondering how you'll pay for your kid's college tuition? Here's a possible solution. CareFRESH, a leading brand of food and habitat products for small pets, wants kids to name its guinea pig mascot. The winning name earns a $20,000 scholarship annuity and a Wii game system.
With permission from their parents, kids can visit http://www.carefresh.com/scholarship to enter the contest and suggest a name.
CareFRESH will select five finalists and put them to a vote on its Web site. All finalists will receive a Wii game system. The winning name also earns a $20,000 scholarship annuity.
“Offering a scholarship annuity is a good fit with the CareFRESH brand,” said Tom Pletcher, Director of Marketing. “We are committed to education and helping kids become good pet owners.”
The scholarship contest is part of CareFRESH Critter College, a free lesson kit for grades 4-7 that teaches kids how to safely care for small pets like guinea pigs, rabbits, gerbils and hamsters.
To enter the scholarship contest, kids must pass a quick quiz on responsible small pet ownership. The answers can be found in the Critter College curriculum or on the CareFRESH Web site, http://www.carefresh.com/caring.
Entries must be received by 6/1/11. The contest is open to residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are between the ages of five and 15 by May 24, 2010.
The CareFRESH brand, which includes CareFRESH small animal bedding and CareFRESH Complete foods, is part of Absorption Corp., which also develops, manufactures and markets proprietary, cost-effective absorbent products for oil and hazardous spill cleanup and other purposes.
