FPgirl (http://www.FPgirl.com), the first girl-driven fashion and style destination, has announced its Simple2Swag Green Is Glam design contest in celebration of Earth Day. Girls will create designs that sparkle, shine and celebrate what they do to help protect the planet.
For the contest, girls are encouraged to submit earth-inspired designs that show how they make the world a better place. Designs can be submitted via the FPgirl Style Mag or by mail. All submissions will be made available for voting and FPgirls will vote to choose the Top 10 designs.
The timeline of the contest is as follows:
April 1- 22: Submissions Accepted
April 22 (Earth Day): Voting Begins
April 29: Top 10 Announced
May 1: Top 3 Winners Announced
“The Simple2Swag design contests are a way to witness first-hand the creativity of our FPgirls,” said Sarah McIlroy, founder and president of FashionPlaytes. “By celebrating Earth Day with the Simple2Swag Green Is Glam contest, we are not only getting the girls excited about designing and expressing their individual sense of style, but also spreading the word about protecting the planet we all call home. This is a cause that is important to our FPgirls and we want to celebrate it the best way we know how – with fabulous fashion.”
A fashion forward panel, made up of industry experts Lylah Alphonse of Yahoo! Shine, Lyss Stern with Diva Moms, Nicole Feliciano from Mom Trends and Kailey Harless at The Daily Mail will then pick the Top 3 winners, including one grand prize winner. Each of the three contest winners will have their designs produced and printed on an eco-friendly tote bag. In addition, FPgirl will make a $50 donation in their name to their favorite environmentally friendly charity. One grand prize winner will be featured on FPgirl.com and receive an extra tote bag for her BFF.
The Top 3 designs will be available for sale on eco-friendly tote bags and made available on FPgirl.com so that all FPgirls can spread the Earth Day message in a stylish way.
