12/7 Cubs Caravan contest
For the second straight year, Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana schools can enter an essay contest to convince the Cubs to visit their school on the annual Cubs Caravan. The contest will reward one school with a visit from Cubs players, coaches and front office leadership on Jan. 12.
Teachers or principals, in cooperation with their students, can visit cubs.com to submit an essay of 400 words or less in support of their school as a Cubs Caravan destination. The entry period is open now and ends Dec. 16 at 8 p.m. CT. Schools must be located in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake or McHenry counties in Illinois, or Lake or Porter counties in Indiana.
The Cubs Caravan is a two-day excursion of Cubs personnel to schools, neighborhoods and communities throughout Illinois and Northwest Indiana. To enter the 2012 Cubs Caravan Visits My School Contest and to review official rules, visit https://secure.mlb.com/chc/community/caravan_contest.jsp.
