Know of a kindergarten classroom that needs a facelift? Nominate them to win all labor and materials necessary for a custom-paint job. Just send a photograph of the classroom and a short essay (200 words or less) that explains how the students will benefit from a more colorful classroom environment. Essays may be submitted in the form of a short story, script, or poem–imagination and creativity are encouraged. All selected classrooms will choose paint colors and creative graphic artwork from a pre-selected color palette specially developed by ICI Paints. Glidden’s color experts suggest color schemes based on room size, lighting, climate, and personal preferences that help fulfill a child’s social, emotional, and physical needs, and create an environment that is conducive to learning. One kindergarten classroom per school is eligible to win. If a school has multiple kindergarten classrooms, each classroom must be nominated separately with a different teacher’s name.
