If you are planning to enter the contest hosted by the Bradenton Herald and the Junior League of Manatee County, you'll need to know the rules. The contest is both an essay and coloring contest. Those who are first place winners will receive an American Girl Doll and will also receive tickets to the American Girl Fashion Show.
The essay contest is open to those girls ages 8 to 12. Girls will need to answer specific questions in 100 words or so. The coloring contest is for those ages 5 to 7 and will require the downloading of a template for the Bradenton Herald website (this is also where you can go to learn about the judging, rules and other requirements of the event.)
For those who want to participate in the American Girl Fashion Show taking place, you can buy tickets for the event at Jlmcagfasionshow.org. There are fees involved in purchasing the tickets. The proceeds earned from the event will help the community organization, which focuses on foster children care.
