TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Coloring Page Contest

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.

The winner will be selected by a panel of TMT Marketing personnel and will be informed via email that they won.

Prize: $200 Visa gift card

Contest will run Oct 14 – Nov 15

Winner will be announced Nov. 22

Caleb & Nic @ Snyder Hall - RCAH Theatre
Nov 1 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Caleb & Nic

Sponsored by the Department of Theatre and Dr. Lauren Harris, Department of Psychology
This performance is presented in conjunction with RCAH

Caleb Teicher and Nic Gareiss move and sound together at the intersection of jazz and folk, social and solo dance. Though lauded for their status within their respective genres, in this new 60-minute duo collaboration Teicher and Gareiss blur boundaries and playfully transgress, exploring improvisation, song, and the idea of percussive dance. Drawing on American tap dance, jazz, swing, lindy hop, Appalachian clogging, and Irish step dance, Caleb Teicher and Nic Gareiss create a breathtaking evening of dance rooted in time and place yet uniquely their own; a festive dialogue of sound, movement, and corporeal rapport.

Friday, November 1, 2019 at 8:00pm 
Location: RCAH Theater
Terrace Level of Snyder Hall 362 Bogue Street
This event is FREE and open to the general public

Brown Bag Seminar with Dr. Carrie Symons @ 116H Erickson Hall

Brown Bag Seminar with Dr. Carrie Symons @ 116H Erickson Hall

From “what” and “how” to “who:” Literacy and language instructional practices with immigrant-origin youth in the U.S.

12:00 – 1:00 PM in 116H Erickson Hall

Carrie’s research is focused on the development of innovative instructional practices that can be used in
multilingual contexts to engage diverse groups of youth, particularly immigrant- and refugee-origin
youth, in literacy and language-rich learning experiences that affirm their cultural identities, literacies,
and forms of knowledge. Informed by sociolinguistic theories of language development and linguistically
responsive pedagogy, her work specifically investigates how teachers can create curricula and provide
instruction that promotes immigrant-origin youth’s additive acculturation and reduces xenophobia.

Since fall of 2016, Carrie has been partnering with the Refugee Development Center in Lansing,
Michigan. In fall of 2018, she spoke at the 13th International Mind, Brain and Education symposium,
“Migrants and Refugees in the 21st Century: Children in and out of schools” in Erice, Sicily, and in 2019,
she became a Re-Imagining Migration fellow.

In this session, she will share key findings from her community-engaged research relative to:

● how out-of-school organizations can foster immigrant-origin youth’s language development and
additive acculturation;
● which theoretical principles and instructional practices are most relevant and useful for novice
ESOL1 teachers;
● the role of “not knowing:” linguistically responsive instruction in multilingual settings; and
● the humanizing potential of sharing stories—listening and being heard—in intercultural contexts.
