Baby Monk Seal Naming & Poetry Contest - for 4th & 5th Graders

In June of 2015, renown fabric artist Evelyn Roth created two inflatable Hawaiian Monk Seal Classrooms for Storybook Theatre. These two monk seals will tour the islands visiting classrooms around the state to teach children about these amazing endangered mammals. Kauai Children in grades 4 & 5 are invited to name our two Monk Seal Inflatables. 

All entries must include the following:
1.) The names you would give to the monk seals. 
2.) An explanation of why those names were chosen and what they mean (especially if using the Hawaiian Language).
3.) A poem or short story about the seals (please make sure to include name & contact info on your entry).
4.) This form must also be completed and accompany the entry.
-DEADLINE: JANUARY 22nd, 2016. Winners will be notified by February 5th.

Winners will receive a $25 cash prize and an appearance on the Russell the Rooster Show to show off their winning entry. Winning entries will also receive a visit from the inflatables for their class.
