Brewers asking kids to design gameday program cover in "Call To the Pen" contest
Calling all artistic kids! The Milwaukee Brewers are looking for creative young fans to submit drawings to be featured on the cover of the Brewers' "Brewers Gameday" program. The "Call to the Pen" contest begins today at 10 a.m. CT, and ends on Wednesday, August 24 at 11:59 p.m. CT. The winner will have his or her design featured on the cover of "Brewers Gameday" during the second to last home series of the 2016 season, September 20-22 against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Parents and guardians may download the design template for their children at Brewers.com/calltothepen. Designs must be hand-drawn and stay within the allotted parameters shown on the template. Children must be of age 14 or under to be eligible to participate, and completed drawings may be scanned and uploaded to Brewers.com/calltothepen.
All submitted designs will be reviewed by an internal Brewers committee that will select a winner based on overall appearance, originality/creativity, style and quality of the submission. The winner will be contacted on or about August 25, and will be announced the first week in September.
Along with having his or her winning drawing featured on the "Brewers Gameday" cover, the winner will receive 500 copies of the program with his or her design on the cover, a meet and greet with Bernie Brewer and the Klement's Racing Sausages and a gift certificate to the Brewers Team Store by Majestic, among other prizes.
