“Heroes Worth Writing For” Contest

Posted November 28, 2011 & filed under Notebook.

Pentel of America celebrates National Handwriting Day with Heroes Worth Writing For, a new promotion in partnership with Operation Gratitude.

Pentel of America, a company in the writing instruments industry, encourages children to hand-write a letter to the U.S. troops between now and January 23, 2012.

The contest has a dual purpose:

1) to celebrate the importance of handwriting and self-expression

2) to recognize and express thanks to the U.S. troops who may serve in harm’s way

Children may send handwritten letters to:  Pentel of America, 4000 E. Airport Dr., Suite C, Ontario, CA 91761.  In honor of National Handwriting Day, only handwritten entries will be accepted. The Grand Prize is a $200 Visa Gift Card and $100 in Pentel products. Four runner-ups will receive a $50 Visa Gift Card and $25 in Pentel products. Official rules can be found at www.pentel.com.
