I feel the same way about many of the contests offered for children's art. I
feel it is a sneaky way to exploit children and its an inexpensive way for
leaches to decorate businesses, offices, banks, schools etc.
recently I was offered a drunk driving poster contest. I through it in the
garbage, children do not drink and drive. The contest should be offered to AA
members.
