Each week, the kids and mentors get together for a couple hours to do something fun and new. Activities range from touring a local business, scavenger hunts at a local park to ice cream social’s at Children’s Village.
Two weeks ago, Liberty Bottle Works hosted Kid’s Club for a tour of their Yakima facility. The kids got to see how they make the water bottles and even draw their own designs to be entered into a Back to School Art Contest, giving one aspiring artist a chance for their work to be featured on a limited edition Liberty bottle. The winning design will be printed on a limited run of Liberty’s new 16 oz. kids bottles and sold on http://www.libertybottles.com and through participating retailers. The company will donate $7 from each bottle sold to the art program at the winning student’s school.
“These new kids bottles have been a lot of fun for our illustrators to design, and we know there are some talented young people out there who can do us one better,” said Liberty Co-Founder Ryan Clark. “Plus, we know art programs around the country are struggling to survive and every little bit helps, so it’s a chance for the winning artist to make a real difference at their school.”
Six-year-old Klay Koler submitted his artwork during the Kid’s Club tour and his drawing is one of the finalists! To vote for Klay’s design (and to see all of the children’s artwork) go to the Liberty Bottle’s Facebook page. Voting ends August 5th and a winner will be chosen on August 6th.
“We had a wonderful visit to Liberty Bottle works,” Klay’s mom Joanna Koler said. “It was fun to watch Klay carefully draw his picture and proudly turn it in. I might have to start figuring out a way to save his sidewalk chalk drawings!”
