Kids who aren’t afraid of coloring outside of the lines are being invited to try out the colorful experience of being the CEO of the Crayola Experience for a day.

Crayola announced that one kid will be chosen for the creative role at each of the five Crayola Experience locations around the country. Little CEOs will be put to work testing and providing feedback on attractions, seasonal activities, and possible new products. Perhaps the brightest perk of all is that they will be able to name a Limited Edition crayon that will be sold at the Crayola Store.

The CEOs won’t go home empty-handed. Each one will leave the job with a package of prizes valued at $600. The Crayola Experience crayon mascot will make a special visit to the winners’ schools, where every student will receive a free ticket to be admitted to the experience.

To enter, parents of kids ages 6-12 can submit a 30-second to 90-second video of kids showcasing their rainbow of talents before April 12. In the video, kids need to state their ideas for making the Crayola Experience fun for other kids and describe why they are the right ones for the job. Most of all, the video should show the kids having fun! Crayola will judge the videos based on kids’ Crayola spirit, fun delivery, and creative ideas.

Five winners will be notified on April 30. Parents can visit Crayola’s website for the full job description and details on how to apply.
