The deadline for submissions is July 15. The winning design will grace the official e-card that all kids club members will receive in the coming year. (Here’s how to become a member.)

One way to enter the contest is to attend the June 29 kids club event, where everyone who participates also will have an opportunity to make a sundae out of carnations. Time slots are available at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Registration is required by contacting your nearest store.

The other way to enter the contest is by downloading the entry form and dropping it off at your nearest store.

You’ll see the 2018 winning design at the top of this post.

SEVENTH-GRADER HARBIN WINS CONNELLS MAPLE LEE KIDS CLUB BIRTHDAY CARD DESIGN CONTEST

Danica Harbin likes horseback riding, swimming and reading. She also plays violin and sings in the school choir.

“She’s not afraid to try things,” said her mother, Jeannette Harbin of Grove City.

That can-do spirit helps explain why Danica entered this year’s Connells Maple Lee Flowers & Gifts Kids Club birthday card contest.

“I just wanted to see if I could draw, really,” Danica said.

In fact, the seventh-grader submitted the winning entry. Her design will be featured on the electronic card that kids club members will receive on their birthdays in the coming year.

Danica’s prize is a free flower delivery on her next birthday.

The kids club is free to ages 5 to 12. With parental permission, children may register for the kids club at any Connells Maple Lee store or online at cmlflowers.com/kidsclub. Membership benefits include a membership card, website activities, an e-mail newsletter, contests and in-store events.
