Business Launches Grassroots "I Survived the Winter" Campaign

Deadline for Coloring, Image and Essay Contests Is May 1, 2011

VERNON, CT--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - Keep In Touch, an entrepreneurial Connecticut business that created popular grassroots "I Survived the Winter" campaigns in 1994 and 1996, has launched a similar campaign in the wake of the record-breaking Winter of 2010-2011. The new campaign includes a coloring contest, image contest, and essay contest. All three contests are free and open to people of all ages, from children to seniors. 

According to owner Drew Crandall, his inspiration for creating the "I Survived the Winter" contests was living in Chicago in 1977-79, during two of the worst winters on record. "We had spring fever big-time," he recalls, "and there was a collective sigh of relief when winter finally loosened its grip on the city. Across the United States and beyond, millions of us are going through the same experience now."

For more information, please contact Keep In Touch, 30 Lafayette Square, Suite 118, Vernon, CT 06066; 860.871.6500 or visit www.ISurvivedtheWinter.com. Deadline for contest entries is May 1, 2011.
