The First Annual Amazing Kids! Animation Contest will give young animators a chance to be mentored by professional animators from DreamWorks Animation. The contest is part of a partnership between Amazing Kids!, a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring excellence in children, and DreamWorks Animation. The event is hosted on the Amazing Kids! Web site and is open for kids 6-17 years old. As part of the contest, DreamWorks is providing original content for the Amazing Kids! Web site, including animation lessons for kids taught by DreamWorks animators. A panel of DreamWorks animators will choose the winners. Winning prizes include copies of the Web-based animation software program, Macromedia Flash, donated by leading Internet entertainment and software company shockwave.com. All contest entries will be posted on the Amazing Kids! Webspace in the "Amazing Kids! Animation Station," (premiering in late summer, 2000).
