Sharpie Kicks Off It's 2006 Autographs For Education Program; Aims to Collect 1 Million Autographs

Sharpie, the favorite marker of autograph collectors, today announced the 2006 Sharpie 'Autographs for Education' program, which officially began on January 1 and runs through the end of the year.

Through this year-long program, Sharpie hopes to collect one million autographs in exchange for $1 million in Sharpie school funds and supplies. As part of this effort, Sharpie is also sponsoring contests in schools where 150 schools can compete for $5,000 each in school supplies. They are also sponsoring a $10,000 college sweepstakes, which will be awarded to ten students 13 years of age and older.

You can contribute your virtual autograph and sign the Sharpie wall or read the full contest rules.

As of the time of this posting, they already have 26,177 signatures..
