Kids Moving Mountains and Dr. Seuss Contest

There are always contests and prizes and ways for marketing companies to gather information about your child, but I do believe that this contest may be something you want to look into. Do your own due diligence.  

I've never enjoyed a contest that narrows down entries via social media. I'm not sure that is the standard I want to set for my children. I have voted for other people's entries, videos and contests. I'm on the fence...

Even if you just decide to not enter your child, writing the essay is a wonderful exercise.  


  • A nationwide search for kids who are “Moving Mountains” in the areas Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, or Mathematics (STEAM)
Eligibility:

Open to legal residents of the 50 US/DC who are 13 years of age or older as of time of entry. Minors must have parent’s/legal guardian’s permission to participate. Entrant’s nominees must be between 5-18 years of age. Contest starts 3/2/15 at 12:00 PM ET and ends 3/29/15 at 11:59:59 PM ET.

What do Kids Have to Do?
  • Submit an essay  on “How they Will Move Mountains” in one of the STEAM areas. Entries are accepted between March 2 - March 29. 
How are Winners Chosen?
  • Kids, parents and educators will vote on  www.kidsmovingmountains.com. (Yup, a popularity contest.) 
  • The top 10 with the most votes via social media will then be viewed by the contest judges in all areas of STEAM.  
Prizes:
  • One (1) winner is selected from each STEAM area  (total of 5 winners)
  • One (1) Grand prize winner receives a $10,000 Scholarship Grant, ride on Goodyear Blimp, trip to Universal Studios and flights provided by JetBlue
