OFFICIAL RULES

This photo contest is a part of the 2020 Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign in Colorado. By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions. In essence, it has come to serve as the physical embodiment, or reminder, of the great childhoods we want for all children and serves as the national symbol for the prevention of child abuse. 

We encourage photos to include pinwheels for prevention, but no purchase necessary.

Contest photo submissions must promote the pinwheels, strengthening families and protecting children in a positive manner and with positive messages and slogans. The pinwheels may not represent victims of child maltreatment, however, the message points can help inspire support for action all along the continuum of prevention.

Photo entries must be submitted online through this form before April 30th at 5:00 pm MTN. Entry with the most votes at that time are eligible to win a chance to direct an grant towards a Colorado nonprofit serving children and families.   

Grant recipients must be registered as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in good standing with the State of Colorado to receive the grant prize. The selected nonprofit will receive the grant before December 1, 2020.

An extra 10 bonus points will be awarded for sharing an inspirational story or message through the photo contest entry form. Those points will be added toward the vote total towards a contest prize. 

Void where prohibited.
