We are thrilled to once again be a part of Prevent Blindness America’s 2013 Most Beautiful Eyes Contest! Real Kids Shades is proud to be co-sponsoring this year’s contest along with Marchon Eyewear, Eagle Eyes® Optics, and Walters Golf.
The Most Beautiful Eyes Contest offers children all across the country a chance to win an educational scholarship worth $10,000 from Marchon Eyewear. From June 24 through July 31, 2013, parents with children up to 17 years old are invited to enter their child in the contest by submitting a photo of their son or daughter on the Prevent Blindness America Facebook page.
During the month of August, the public will vote for the child in each state with the most beautiful eyes. Each winner at the state level will receive a free pair of Real Kids Shades, as well as the book “Jacob’s Eye Patch” by Beth Kobliner Shaw and Jacob Shaw. There will also be a panel of celebrity judges, which includes Larry King, Curt Menefee, Barbara Eden, and Beth Kobliner Shaw.
The national grand prize winner will get the chance to visit Chicago for a weekend to attend Prevent Blindness America’s Annual Awards Banquet in November, along with two family members, where they will officially receive their scholarship.
Last year’s winner was an adorable blue-eyed four-year-old named Ava. Meggen, Ava’s mom, said that in addition to receiving such a generous scholarship for Ava’s future education, the family was “proud to be a part of something that brings awareness to the importance of healthy vision for children.”
Real Kids Shades is honored to be a part of this annual contest and we look forward to your participation this year! Now, parents get those cameras ready and start snapping pictures of your kids and their big blue, brown or green eyes. We can’t wait to see your entries as they begin to roll in on June 24!
