Point, click, shoot and win in calendar photography contest

Success By 6 invites the public to submit photos for a 2012 Early Childhood Development Calendar and a chance to win some great prizes.

Until the deadline on Monday, June 13, you can submit photos online at www.successby6bc.ca.

The goal of Success By 6 is to build community through engaging citizens in early childhood development and funding programs that include literacy, nutrition, children’s play, parenting and family skills development.

For the calendar, images from across B.C. are being sought for consideration.

Finalists will be selected weekly and posted onto the Success By 6 Facebook page.

The photo generating the most “Like” votes will win the grand prize of a Canon EOS Rebel T3 12.2MP DSLR Camera.

The Success By 6 Early Childhood Development calendar has been produced with the fiscal  support of the Credit Unions of B.C.

That sponsorship has   made it possible to offer this calendar for free to more than 55,000 families with young children across the province.

Inside this calendar, parents and caregivers will find valuable information to support them in the most important and rewarding job in the world—nurturing young children.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our community to be involved in creating this great resource,” said  Carol Ellison, Central Okanagan’s Success By 6 coordinator.

In 2011, 3,000 calendars were distributed locally.

“It’s the number one Success By 6 resource that families ask for every year,” added  Ellison.

“We are so thankful for the generous support of our local Credit Unions —Interior Savings, Valley First, Prospera, and Envision, who have partnered with Credit Unions across B.C. for three years now to make this much needed and desired calendar possible for young families.”

Success By 6 is a joint initiative of the United Way, credit unions and the provincial ministry of children and family development.
