Life is Good® Launches Second Annual T-Shirt Art Contest for Kids to Inspire Optimism

Kids and teens are invited to hand draw what makes life good for a chance to win a college scholarship and have their design sold on – all supporting kids in need.

Positive lifestyle brand Life is Good® launches its second annual T-Shirt Art Contest for kids and teens today, sparking a meaningful exercise for kids about focusing on the good and inspiring an optimistic mindset at a young age. This is the brand’s second year asking young optimists to draw why life is good and make life better for kids in need. Once again, $1 will be donated for every entry. Last year, Life is Good received over 7,500 entries and turned three finalists’ drawings into actual T-shirts, with 100% of the net profits going to the Life is Good Kids Foundation. 

Now through May 1, 2017, kids ages 4 – 17 can get involved by going to For every entry received, Life is Good will donate $1 to the Life is Good Kids Foundation, which partners with frontline caregivers who dedicate their careers to helping children heal from early childhood trauma, such as poverty, violence, and illness.

Four finalists will have their drawings featured on Life is Good T-shirts with 100% of the net profits benefiting the Life is Good Kids Foundation. They will also be awarded a $2,000 scholarship, a suite of art supplies, and more. Like-minded partners across the nation will join the art contest by sharing entry forms, giveaways and more: Friendly’s, National Geographic Kids, Junior Achievements, WGBH, and various Life is Good KidsFoundation partner organizations.

“Last year, we asked kids across the country to draw what makes life good. The response? Not video games, candy, or even Snapchat – but family, love, nature, and earth”, said Steve Gross, Chief Playmaker of the Life is Good Kids Foundation. “Art came from every corner of the country, and the results were eye-opening, especially when the news headlines don’t often highlight all the good going on in the world. Our next generation may be the most optimistic yet.”
