Crozer-Keystone Health System and the Philadelphia Union have created a Delaware County poster contest for local students to demonstrate their artistic skills and win tickets for the New England Revolution vs. Philadelphia Union soccer game at PPL Park on May 17. A total of 50 tickets will be awarded by Crozer-Keystone to 13 talented students and their families, through the Philadelphia Union’s Kicks for Kids program.
This contest is open to all Delaware County students between the ages of 7 to 12, as of May 17. The students will be judged in three age divisions (7-8, 9-10, 11-12), and are asked to create a poster with the theme of “Soccer, Health and Community.” Posters can not be larger than 18” X 24” and only markers, pens, crayons and/or pencils are to be used. All completed posters should have a label placed in the lower right hand corner with the child’s name, child’s gender, age as of May 17, school, parent’s name(s), and contact phone number.
All posters should be dropped off in the main lobby of the Crozer Medical Plaza at Brinton Lake, 300 Evergreen Drive, Glen Mills, Pa, between March 28 and April 25, in a bin marked “Delaware County Poster Contest.” The Medical Plaza is open Monday to Thursday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., closed Saturday and Sunday. If you are unable to drop off the poster at the Crozer Medical Plaza, you may scan the poster to firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the week of April 28, Crozer-Keystone will determine the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place winners for each of the three age divisions plus one honorable mention student. A parent for each of the thirteen students will be contacted and arrangements will be made to provide four tickets to the May 17 game for each winner, and two tickets for the honorable mention student. The winning artwork along with the names of the students will be posted on the social media sites and websites for both Crozer-Keystone and the Philadelphia Union during the month of May.
Kicks for Kids is a national marketing platform through Major League Soccer that enables teams to develop community outreach programs with corporate partners. The Philadelphia Union launched this program in 2014 with Crozer-Keystone as the first corporate partner. In addition to the Delaware County poster contest winners, Crozer-Keystone has agreed to donate additional 2014 Philadelphia Union tickets for local organizations that include: Soccer for Success, Boys & Girls Club of Chester, Wellness Center at Community Hospital, Unionville Recreational Association, Drexel Hill Raiders, and Kids Asthma Management Program.
