This Year's Contest is Just Beachy!

Our turkey has escaped the chill of the Midwest and flown South for the winter! This year's contest has the same rules as years past, but with a fun beach-themed scene for our feathered friend. Happy coloring!

Turkey Coloring Contest FAQs

Can homeschool students participate?

Yes! We welcome entries from homeschool students.

What can I use to decorate my turkey?

Use your imagination! Crayons, markers, paint and colored pencils are all great ways to color your turkey but we also accept turkeys with attached decorations like feathers, sequins and other crafty items. We do ask that any added decorations be securely attached, especially glitter. Our turkey judges have been glitter-bombed countless times over the years!

Can I email my entries?

We certainly prefer mailed entries because they save us the time and resources of printing the turkeys. If email is the only way you can send your class's entries, we can work with you to be sure you are included.

Teacher Tip

To save time, fill in school information at the bottom of the turkey before printing for your class.
