Do you have a son or daughter whose fandom for FC Dallas runs deep? Would he or she be able to prove it on paper? If so, then we've got a contest your kid will find to be a real "kick."
In partnership with FC Dallas, we here at Elephant Auto Insurance are looking for the team's fans to show us their soccer spirit by submitting an original piece of artwork that demonstrates their love for their hometown team. In addition, enthusiasts are asked to write a brief statement that elaborates on why they yearn for the "Burn."
As per usual, to the victor goes the spoils, and the winning artist will receive two tickets to Toyota Stadium, where the starting five will take on the Colorado Rapids at 8 p.m on Sept. 10. Additionally, the grand prize winner will get VIP treatment and be able to interact with an FC Dallas player of his or her choosing. Plus, he or she will receive a $1,500 donation on behalf of FC Dallas and Elephant Auto Insurance to be put toward the winner's art program. And if that weren't enough, the victorious painting, photograph, or drawing will be on display for everyone to see. :
Interested? Here are some of the details, as exclusions may apply:
- Students must be enrolled in school and in grades K-8.
- The artistic piece or rendering must be 2-D (drawing, painting, or photograph).
- The piece must include a short statement on what makes FC Dallas special to the contestant.
Here's how to enter:
