Color Me Mine is excited to announce its partnership with Peanuts for the 2012 Give a Dog a Bowl dog bowl painting contest! This popular, national program is entering its sixth year and has become a summer tradition at many of the Color Me Mine studios across the country.

“This contest is a great way to showcase local talent, of all ages and abilities, on a national platform in a fun and different way, and each year we look forward to seeing first time entries as well as customers who enjoyed it so much in year’s past that they are back for another try,” said Tara Thomman, Marketing Specialist, Color Me Mine. “With the recent release of Happiness is… Peanuts(TM): Team Snoopy DVD, partnering with Peanuts on this project is a perfect fit, and we are so excited for their involvement to make 2012’s Give a Dog a Bowl contest the most exciting yet.”

Color Me Mine’s national Give a Dog a Bowl dog bowl painting contest begins at participating studios across the country on June 22. Customers are invited to paint and enter their bowls at a local studio through July 22.

Online voting will take place on each participating studio’s website August 1-15. Local winners will then be entered into the national contest. National Entries will be available to view on the main Color Me Mine website,, from August 20-25. The team at Peanuts will choose a national winner in each of two categories – under 12 and 12+ — and they will be announced on Sunday, August 26th, National Dog Day.

The national winner in the under 12 category will receive a Happiness is…Peanuts DVD collection. The 12+ winner will receive an autographed Peanuts poster, signed by Jeannie Schulz, widow of Charles M. Schulz. Color Me Mine will award each winner a Family Paint Party, valid for up to 10 painters each, as well as a feature in the 2013 Give A Dog A Bowl campaign.

There is no additional fee to enter the contest, however the customer must purchase and paint their bowl at Color Me Mine during the contest dates. Actual prizes and certificates for the paint parties will be delivered to the winning studios, so that the owner may present the winner with their prizes directly. Local level prizing varies and is determined by the participating Color Me Mine studio.
