Two Men and a Truck is holding a contest for a fresh coloring page design for Movers for Moms®. Movers for Moms is our national giving program aimed to assist moms in need. All our franchise locations collect donations to deliver to women’s and family shelters every spring. The franchises partner with various organizations to collect these items and make Mother’s Day special for all moms, regardless of their circumstances. In 2019 alone, we collected more than 383,000 items in 44 states.
- The design would be outlines in black and white for kids to color in at any of our Movers for Moms events and to put in the kits sent to all our franchises to give away.
- Theme is family/moms. The design should stick in a childlike/cartoon type style (See attached pages for reference of our current coloring book).
- Files accepted: Print Ready PDFs or Packaged Illustrator or InDesign files
Winner will have to sign a legal waiver granting us unlimited usage rights to the design and full intellectual property rights.

Luis A. Sahagun | Wednesday, November 20 | Broad Art Museum | 7pm
Luis Sahagun is an AAHD Artist-in-Residence: Critical Race Studies. Sahagun’s drawings, sculptures, paintings, and performances confront the palpable inescapability of race and transforms art into an act of reclamation. As a previously undocumented immigrant and former laborer, Sahagun’s work focus on the importance of Latinx cultures and contributions in order to combat the anti-immigration and anti-Latinx national rhetoric that persists throughout the country.
Support for this lecture is provided by the MSU Federal Credit Union, Broad Art Museum, The College of Arts and Letters, and the Department of Art, Art History, and Design.
