'Q is for Queens' Contest and Giveaway|
Contest Ended: 5/17/2014
Enter the 'Q is for Queens' contest and giveaway for your chance to be featured in a new children's book about the borough of Queens. Plus, one grand prize winner will receive a family four pack of tickets to Arthur Ashe Kids' Day at the U.S. Open tennis championship.
What's the coolest thing about Queens? If you grew up in the borough, what childhood memory sticks out in your mind? If you live there now, where's your favorite place to take your kids? Tell us here for your chance to be featured in the new children's book "Q is for Queens," an illustrated ABC book for kids about NYC's largest and most diverse borough.
"Q is for Queens" is the brainchild of Amol Sarva, a tech entrepreneur and lifelong Queens resident who now lives in Long Island City. Sarva, a dad of two young girls, says he came up with the idea for the book when he realized that Queens was constantly overshadowed by the other boroughs, especially in children's books. "Q is for Queens" aims to highlight all of the unique and wonderful things about Sarva's home borough in alphabetical order, from A for Arthur Ashe Stadium to T for the Observation Towers (built in the 1960s for the World's Fair). The book includes many colorful images by illustrator Renee Bentley.
The book has gained a ton of support on Kickstarter.com, where Sarva initially set a goal to raise $8,000. He has far surpassed that already and has set a new goal of $35,000, which will help get the book into every Queens art institution, museum, school, and library -- thus getting the book into the hands of more kids.
Sarva says he'd like the book to be a collaborative effort, so he's asking for suggestions from one and all on what should be included in the book. Submit your suggestion below -- a memory, a place, a person tied to the borough in some way -- for your chance to be featured in the book.
3 winners will be listed in the contributor section of the book and will receive copies once the book is printed in June.
1 grand prize winner will also receive a 1-year family membership to the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.
Enter below by May 15!
