Perdue and Crayola Bring Fun to the Table

Perdue Farms Incorporated announces a national contest encouraging families to enter an original picture of how they bring fun to the dinner table for a chance to win valuable prizes including a cruise package, a year's supply of PERDUE® Frozen Fully Cooked Chicken and a prize pack of Crayola and PERDUE® products.

With the busy back-to-school season right around the corner, Perdue and Crayola are celebrating the importance of taking the time for family meals. According to a study conducted by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University, kids who have dinner with their parents five or more times a week are more likely to say they get mainly A's and B's in school than kids who have two or fewer family dinners a week.

Families can submit their pictures, photos or original drawings of how they make mealtime fun online at www.perdue.com/familyfun and invite their family and friends to come back in October to vote for their picture. The twenty pictures with the most votes will be deemed finalists. The grand prize, first prize and second prize winners will be chosen from the finalists by Perdue's judging panel. The judges will be looking for creativity, originality and the extent to which the artwork shows off a fun, family meal.

How to Enter:

  • Take a digital photo, color a freehand picture or enter your creation from Crayola Lights, Camera, Color!, an online program at Crayola.com/ColorMe that allows you to upload a digital photo and turn it into a coloring page. A free access code can be found on packages of PERDUE® Frozen Fully Cooked or Refrigerated Breaded Nuggets.
  • All entries should demonstrate how your family brings fun to the table.
  • Visit www.perdue.com/familyfun to enter your artwork in the contest
  • Vote for your favorite photo at www.perdue.com/familyfun and tell your friends to do the same!

"Perdue is committed to delivering delicious and quick meals for families so they can spend less time in the kitchen and more time enjoying their meal," says Jim Perdue, Chairman, Perdue Farms. "We are thrilled to partner with Crayola to allow children to share their creativity and make mealtime a fun time for the whole family."
