Each vote also counts as an entry to win a daily "Safety To-Go Kit" from STANLEY. The kit includes a first aid kit, flashlight, safety vest and many other functional items that, in addition to being essential in the event of an emergency, are great safety educational tools for children.
Winners will be notified in December 2013, and prizes will be awarded in 2014.
