How To Enter:

Take a video of your kid singing Old McDonald Had A Farm. Send that raw video file to with your child’s name, age and phone number or email address.

Video tips: Video should be done in a well lit area – outdoors in the shade is the best, try not to have the sun directly behind or in front of you.

Winners will be chosen at random. All entrants names will go into a draw and the winner will receive a prize.

Videos will be used in a compilation video that will be posted on our Virtual Site and Social Media accounts.
