Young artist or writer in the house? Seal Sitters is welcoming more entries in its art/story contest, with the deadline coming up August 15th, two weeks from this Thursday. Seal Sitters’ Robin Lindsey says it’s open to all kids going into grades K-5, and the basic theme is: Create “a story or drawing about where seal pup Spud [whose appearance onshore in ’07 was the inspiration for Seal Sitters] was born, where he and his mom traveled, how he got to Alki Beach, what does he see when he swims in Puget Sound, etc.” Full details of the contest are here, including where to drop off or mail entries. All the stories and drawings will be shown at the Alki Bathhouse during the “Year of the Seal” celebration event 1-4 pm Sunday 9/8/13. And the entries will be judged for prizes, including Seattle Aquarium tickets and copies of the book “Leonard and Silkie.” Questions? Contact Lynn, shimamoto.lynn (at) gmail (dot) com.
