Do you and your family love dressing up for Halloween? Then you should enter your kids into the KidsPost Halloween Costume Contest! KidsPost, in association with The Washington Post, is looking for the most creative, the scariest, or the funniest, Halloween costumes for kids ages five through thirteen. Not one, but ten winners will be chosen and those entrants will win a prize and be featured in KidsPost!
If you and your kids decide you want to enter the contest, remember the winning costumes will be published in the October 20 issue of KidsPost and www.kidspost.com.
Here is what you need to enter the contest according to The Washington Post:
- A parent or guardian must submit your entry.
- A photo of you in your homemade costume. It can be this year’s or last year’s costume. (Please send as a hi-res, or large, JPEG image file.)
- A short description of what your costume is and why you chose to make it. Include such details as the materials you used, how long it took you to make and how much help you received from grown-ups. (Some help is okay.)
- Your name, age (5 to 13), home town, and a phone number and e-mail address where we can reach your parent.
- Permission for you to enter the contest from a parent or guardian.
- Fill out the form at wpo.st/vlrZ0. You may also send your information to KidsPost, The Washington Post, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071.
- Entries must be submitted by October 7 at 5 p.m.
