The leaves are changing, the air is getting crisp… and your teeth are hurting just LOOKING at all the candy stacked up in the grocery aisles. Yes, it’s October and Halloween is just around the corner!

To celebrate this most playfully creative holiday, we’re very excited to announce that the Cooney Center is partnering with Mobile Learning Finalist Launchpad Toys to create a Spooky Story Contest for kids and parents to create and share their favorite Ghost Stories and Terrifying Tales on Toontastic for the iPad. The winner of the contest will receive a $100 gift certificate to Amazon!

 

To participate in the contest:

1.     Create a Spooky cartoon using Toontastic for the iPad.

2.     Upload your cartoon to ToonTube and send a link to your cartoon to spookystories@launchpadtoys.com by October 17th.

3.     Participants will be announced here on October 18th. Voting will be open through October 24th.

4.     The contest winner will be announced here on October 25th.

5.     Contest is open to residents of the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia (darn those pesky laws!)

Ghouls and Goblins and Good Luck! We can’t wait to see the bone-chilling stories you and your kids/students come up with!
