An Anchorage-based nonprofit that seeks to prevent child abuse and neglect is holding a face mask design contest.
Alaska Children’s Trust said in a news rlease children can design an Alaska face mask, send their design in and potentially have their design chosen to be printed on face masks that will be distributed across the state.

The conest is open to kindergarten-12th-grade students. A template, submission form and additional guidance can be found at: https://www.alaskachildrenstrust.org/facemaskdesign.
