Dunkin’ Donuts seeks artists for mug contest

Dunkin’ Donuts is seeking area artists to participate in its second annual “Miracles for Munchkins” travel mug design contest.

The contest will run Monday through July 26 in conjunction with the Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley “Miracles and Promises” radio fundraiser.

Artwork can be pencil drawing, watercolor, painting, photography or graphic design and should be an interpretation of the miracles and promises delivered by Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley. The winning design will be featured on a limited-edition travel mug for sale at all Mahoning Valley Dunkin’ Donuts locations this fall and will be awarded a $100 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card.

Dunkin’ Donuts will donate the money from the sales of the $5 mug during the month of October to the Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley and have guaranteed the hospital a minimum donation of $20,000. With the purchase of the $5 mug, guests will receive refills for 99 cents at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants through the end of the year.

“Dunkin Donuts has been a wonderful corporate partner and we are grateful for their continued support of the children and families of our community,” said JoAnn Stock, director of development for Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley, in a news release.

“Dunkin’ Donuts is very proud of our collaboration with Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley and we believe this travel mug design contest is a great way to involve local artists in the community,” said Missy Maio, senior manager of field marketing for Dunkin’ Brands. “We are anxious to see the many wonderful designs entered and look forward to raising a lot of money for the hospital.”

Contest entries and complete rules can be found at all Dunkin’ Donuts Mahoning Valley locations.
