We’d love to hear all about what you have done to become better prepared for everyday emergencies. Have you learned how to sew or grow a garden? Have you packed your own emergency kit or taken a first aid class?
Here’s your chance to show off and win some cool prizes at the same time!
You must be a girl, ages 8-12, and live in the United States.
Your entry must consist of both photos and a written paragraph documenting what you have done.
Submit at least 4 photos, but no more than 8. They don’t have to be professional quality but should provide a clear image of what you have done. Example: A photo of the contents of your emergency bag.
The written paragraph should explain and give details about what you have done, what you’ve learned, and why you consider yourself to be a Survival Girl. This isn’t Language Arts class, so don’t worry too much about grammar and spelling, but we can’t judge what we can’t understand! Ask a grown up to double-check what you’ve written, just to be sure it’s clear.
Please email entries to [email protected] with the paragraph in the body (message section) of the email and the photos attached. Entries must be received by midnight on Friday, December 5. Winners will be announced on or before Monday, December 15.
HOW ENTRIES WILL BE JUDGED
It’s easy to pick up a few tips and pointers about a lot of different subjects, but it takes a lot of time (sometimes years!) to become an expert. We’re looking for Survival Girls who have gone beyond that first step of just picking up a few bits of information about a lot of areas and have started down the path toward being an expert.
Judging will be based on the entire entry, with photos and the paragraph carrying equal weight, as it demonstrates to our judging panel what you have learned and what you have accomplished as a Survival Girl.
5 winners will be selected.
Each winner will receive an Entrepreneur Barbie to recognize your pioneering and impressive efforts and a certificate of recognition.
First place winner will also receive a beautiful sterling silver Lovely Hearts Bracelet from IsabelleGrace.
