The Garde Arts Center and its schooltime performance sponsor have launched an online contest with a top prize of a class trip to one of the theater's daytime shows.
The Garde and Bob's Discount Furniture, which sponsors the Schooltime Performance Theater, announced Wednesday that they have launched the 2013 Online Sleuths Contest. Open to students ages five to 18, the contest invites students to search the Garde and Bob's websites for answers to trivia questions on the websites. The contest forms are available on both sites.
The winner of the contest will receive a trip for their class, including up to $500 in transportation costs, for one of the Schooltime Performance Series shows. The individual winner will win a $750 gift card to Bob's Discount Furniture in Niantic.
Contest forms should be mailed or delivered to the Garde by Feb. 15. Entries may also be faxed to 860-701-0189.
