BACK-TO-SCHOOL Liberty Bottleworks Art Contest – You Can Make Money for Your School’s Art Program… Liberty Bottleworks is an amazing company located right here in my hometown of Yakima, Washington. All of their awesome, reusable, earth friendly water bottles are made right here in the USA, and are 100% BPA free. Liberty Bottleworks is launching a new line of 16 oz. kids bottles, and to celebrate the new kid-specific design, the company is hosting a Back to School Art Contest to give one aspiring artist a chance for their work to be featured on a limited edition Liberty bottle. How cool is that, right?
Winning design will be sold to benefit art program at winner’s school
The Back to School Art Contest began Monday, July 9 and entries from young artists ages 5-13 – no help from parents allowed — will be taken through July 20. The winning design will be printed on a limited run of Liberty’s new 16 oz. kids bottles and sold on www.libertybottles.com, and through participating retailers. The company will donate $7 from each bottle sold to the art program at the winning student’s school.
“These new kids bottles have been a lot of fun for our illustrators to design, and we know there are some talented young people out there who can do us one better,” said Liberty Co-Founder Ryan Clark. “Plus, we know art programs around the country are struggling to survive and every little bit helps, so it’s a chance for the winning artist to make a real difference at their school.”

The new line of kids bottles from Liberty boast the same features found on the company’s 24 and 32 oz. models – BPA-free, recycled aluminum construction, food grade inner coating, tapered neck for easy pouring and dent resistant design – but come in a smaller package. The 16 oz. version will feature Liberty’s standard, patent-pending quarter turn cap, while the smaller, soon-to-be-released 12 oz. bottle will come standard with the new sport cap, which is spill proof and easy for younger children to use.
