Draw Why Life is Good Art Contest

Positive lifestyle brand Life is Good® announced today the launch of its first t-shirt art contest for kids, encouraging them to focus on the good and spread the power of optimism. Every time kids draw and share “why life is good” they’ll help make life better for kids in need.

“The world today can be an intense, complex and challenging place – but as humans we have a choice to focus on what’s right in our lives rather than what’s wrong,” said John Jacobs Chief Creative Optimist & Life is Good co-founder. “The amazing thing about young kids is this comes naturally to them. Our goal with this contest is to celebrate and inspire that raw sense of optimism, to remind people of the simple things that make life good, while also raising money to help kids overcome poverty, violence and illness.”

Beloved for over 20 years for its fun, positive message apparel, Life is Good is dedicated to inspiring people to choose optimism to positively impact their life and the lives of others.

Three grand prize winners will have their drawing featured on Life is Good t-shirts (with net profits donated to support kids in need) and be awarded a $2,000 scholarship as part of the prize package.
