Earlier this month, Honey Maid created an online initiative – Made Co. – to help kids get their ideas made. Made Co. is a unique new online contest series in which kids ages 6-12 can win opportunities to have their ideas brought to life with the help of industry experts. The site was developed to inspire kids to learn and create under the guidance of real world professionals in their chosen fields. Lately there’s been a trend of kids being more interested in consuming content than in making it; Made Co. is a direct response to that.
Through Made Co., Honey Maid will partner with several experts from a variety of industries including clothing designers, game and toy makers, among others. Along with Honey Maid, the industry experts will review idea submissions and select one grand prize winning idea per project to be professionally created, with the help of the winning applicant. One of the current projects on the site now includes a chance to win a trip to attend a writer’s workshop (for a winning child with her/her parent) with My Weird School book series author, Dan Gutman, at HarperCollins Publishers headquarters in New York City. The winner will work with Dan and HarperCollins to produce ten copies of the book that s/he has conceived.
