Street Smarts: 'The Giant's Party'

I found this fun contest (sorry, it's a localized one in California) for kids and enjoyed the concept: Street Smarts: 'The Giant's Party':

For the contest, elementary school children from throughout the San Ramon Valley draw illustrations for Street Smarts' third traffic safety storybook, "The Giant's Party" written by local author Dana Mentink.

Each year, hundreds of students choose one of the pages in the storybook to illustrate. Each page in the storybook teaches about a specific traffic safety theme.

In "The Giant's Party," Jack climbs the beanstalk up to a giant's castle and receives instructions to deliver party invitations to other storybook characters. Jack and the fairytale characters learn about bicycle, scooter, skateboard and rollerblading safety along the way.

Ten illustrations, one for each page in the storybook, are chosen as winners and are featured in the final storybook distributed to thousands of children throughout the San Ramon Valley. Each winner will receive a Flip video camcorder and an art kit.
