Contest to reward Peanuts look-alikes
Is your child a ringer for Linus, with or without security blanket? If your son or daughter has the look of a “Peanuts” comic strip character, you can submit photos at www.peanutsphotocontest.com.
Entries can be submitted through Nov. 3, and the grand prize is an all-expense-paid trip for four to Cedar Fair amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, home of Planet Snoopy.
Jill Schulz, daughter of “Peanuts” creator Charles Schulz, will join judge Jo Frost (“Supernanny”) and two Oklahomans — Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood — in selecting finalists. The public vote begins Nov. 11.
Brooks and Yearwood are fans of the “Peanuts” characters, Jill Schulz said.
“They are also great role models for parents today and advocates for children in general,” Schulz said in an e-mail interview. “And, they know the work involved in posing for the camera — not to mention getting your kids to do it!”
Schulz says that, over the years, she’s heard from many fans about “Peanuts” look-alikes.
“Practically every fan we’ve ever met has told us that they have a particular Peanuts character they relate to — or that a family member, friend or child reminds them of a certain ‘Peanuts’ character,” Jill Schulz said. “With the 60th anniversary coming up, this seemed like the perfect time to give people the chance to share their stories — and their pictures!
