March 2015

This month, we hosted a 5K Facebook Fan Contest as a thank you for helping us reach our goal of 5,000 fans before the end of 2014. From your responses, it’s obvious that many of you greatly value the community calendar. We appreciate knowing what you like best about Kid’s Directory!

Speaking of giveaways, one of our most frequently asked questions is, “how do I get my child’s picture on the cover?” Every year we sponsor a Cover Kid Contest in September but this year we’re adding another one for our June cover! To register your child, visit one of our booths at The World’s Largest Baby Shower on March 28th or Champions for Kids RazorFest on April 25th AND submit your child’s picture to artwork@nwakd.com by April 30, 2015. A winner will be drawn & announced on May 1, 2015. We’ll also have fabulous giveaways at these events!

March’s issue features Spring Break Camps, a preview of Summer Camps & Programs PLUS lots of spring fundraisers & events. Clearly, it’s time for us to come out of hibernation & enjoy what NWA has to offer in the spring! We thought we’d give you a snapshot here.
