Move 4 Less to hold Create Your Dream Home Art Contest for kids

Local youths are invited to create their “dream home” from a box for a chance to win electronics, gift cards and school supplies. Local moving company Move 4 Less is sponsoring the Create Your Dream Home Art Contest. The only rule is for kids to let their imaginations run wild in decorating or making a box — a minimum of 18-inches wide — into their desired home.

“We loved the creativity and imagination entrants displayed when we held this competition before and look forward to seeing this year’s dream homes,” said Move 4 Less co-owners Avi Cohen and Moti Perez. “We’re happy to sponsor Create Your Dream Home for youth in our community. It’s a great summer project for them and a lot of fun for the entire Move 4 Less team.”

Dogs, candy, Halloween, clouds and activities were some of the themes from last year’s contest.

Six entries will be chosen based on creativity and imagination by more than 60 Move 4 Less team members. Three winners will be chosen from entries in a 5-to 8-year-old category, and three will be selected from a 9-to-12-year-old category. They will receive Dream Backpacks filled with prizes.

Submissions are due before midnight, Pacific Standard Time, July 10. Entrants should submit photos of all sides of their dream home box and a description of their creation to move4lessnevada.com/art-contest-submit. Only one submission per child is allowed.

Move 4 Less will supply boxes if needed. To schedule a pickup time and day, email Maggie Kolesar, Move 4 Less general sales manager, at maggie@move4lessnevada.com. The Move 4 Less office is at 6630 Arroyo Springs St., Suite 200.

The winners will be notified the week of July 18 and presented with their prizes at a party, hosted by Move 4 Less, at the company office on July 30, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. They (or a family representative) must bring their Dream Home to be displayed during the event and to receive their prize. Winners may invite up to four members to attend.

Details and rules for the Create Your Dream Home Art Contest are available at move4lessnevada.com/art-contest or email questions to info@move4lessnevada.com.
