Cascade Ridge Elementary School student Jeremy Kim’s artwork might become a common site on restaurant tables and in the condiment aisle at grocery stores.
The third-grader is a finalist in the national Heinz Ketchup Creativity Contest — a chance for students in first through 12th grades to redesign the venerable Heinz Ketchup packaging.
People can vote for the design through Monday.
The top three entries in each grade appear online. The public then selects 12 winners, and Heinz picks the grand prize winner from the dozen.
The grand prize winner’s artwork is scheduled to appear on Heinz Ketchup bottles and more than 200 million packets during the 2011-12 school year.
The top 12 designers receive $1,000 apiece. The honorees’ schools receive prizes, including $1,000 for art supplies, $1,000 worth of Heinz Ketchup for the school and a poster of the winning artwork.
Jeremy is not the only Evergreen State contestant in the top 36. The group also includes a Tacoma seventh-grader.
