The prairie has a unique beauty, and this month's contest is about celebrating it. This coloring contest is designated for the children in your life, but someone needs to demonstrate proper technique, so you may need to print off your own sheet to color, too! The contest is just for kiddos, but no reason you can't put yours on the refrigerator to enjoy!

This wonderful coloring sheet is compliments of the Kansas Children's Discovery Center in Topeka. It is from a photo of a butterfly on a sunflower, taken in the Native Prairie Grass Habitat at the Center. Butterflies - sunflowers - what's not to love?

All mailed entries must be postmarked by Friday, August 16, 2013 addressed to KCDC, 4400 SW 10th Ave Topeka, KS 66604. Be sure to include the child's name and age, parent or guardian name and email. You can also submit a scan/photo of your entry here by uploading it as an attachment in the comments section below. The Discovery Center will choose a winner, who will receive four passes to visit. The winner will be contacted directly and posted on the website by Friday, August 30.
