Welcome to our Unmask Your Potential Contest! We created this contest because we believe in following our dreams. United States Mask's dream is to be independent from foreign manufacturing and relying on others for our own safety and protection. Here at United States Mask, dreams are what drive us to be, and we want to see what you dream to be.
The mission of "Unmasking your Potential" is to build resilience and hope around real life situations; to ignite passion and interest; and to remind children that dreams are real and meant to be followed.
We will be giving away $500 worth of school related prizes to 10 winners.
Submissions must revolve around these two questions:
1. "What can you do/be in your Mask?"
"I can do/be..."
2. "What can we do/be in our Mask?"
"We can do/be..."
1. Create a piece of art showing what you can do/be in your mask. Drawings, painting, or other forms of media are acceptable for submission.
