The Philadelphia Phantoms are seeking young artists from across the Delaware Valley to provide drawings and paintings for the team's 2003-04 season ticket book. A total of 40 submissions from kids ages 14 and under will be chosen, with a different winner featured on season tickets for each of the Phantoms' 40 home games next year.

Kids will have until July 1 to submit their drawing or painting of a Phantoms game, favorite player, mascot Phlex or any memorable Phantoms experience. Official coloring sheets can be found on and entries should be mailed to Philadelphia Phantoms, attn: Coloring Contest, First Union Spectrum, 3601 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19148.

In addition to having their drawings or paintings printed in the season ticket books, each of the 40 winners will receive four tickets to the Phantoms' 2003-04 home opener and take part in pre-game festivities on the ice that night. Each winning entry will also be displayed on the concourse during opening night for everyone to admire.

"The season ticket coloring contest just may be the neatest thing we've ever done for kids," said Phantoms Vice President Jim Garino. "We think it will be a lot of fun for kids to create their artwork and become a part of Phantoms history. There will also be a lot of proud parents and children on opening night when the winning masterpieces are unveiled for all to see."
