The Philadelphia Phantoms of the American Hockey League are once again seeking young artists from across the Delaware Valley to provide drawings and paintings for the team's 2004-05 season ticket book. For the second year in a row, 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 9 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, or to have an entry form mailed to you, please call 215-465-4522. Completed coloring sheets should be mailed to Philadelphia Phantoms, Attn: Season Ticket Coloring Contest, Wachovia 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 and their families will receive tickets to the Phantoms game that his/her artwork is used. In addition, the winner's artwork will be displayed on the concourse that night, and the winner will have the opportunity to ride the Zamboni during an intermission at the game.

"The response to last year's season ticket coloring contest was overwhelming," said Phantoms Vice President Jim Garino. "The submissions were all very creative and made our season tickets look pretty amazing. We expect this year's contest to be even bigger and that much tougher to judge."

The Phantoms are currently accepting season ticket and game plan deposits for the 2004-05 season. Log on to or call 215-465-4522 for more information.
