The Hello Project & Sharpie Present: Without A Hello

We’ve teamed up with The Hello Project to hold a handful of contests giving you the chance to win all kinds of cool prizes, of the Sharpie variety, of course! Each contest will focus on specific types/themes of “Hello.”  And this month, The Hello Project and Sharpie are determined to bring the doodler out in all of you!

Sharpie fans, you should know The Hello Project by now, right?!  They’ve popped up on the blog a few times now, but in case your eyes were closed last time you were here (*cough cough* the latest Q&A posted) here’s a run down of how THP works:

The Hello Project centers around giving people the opportunity to say HELLO on one of the smallest, most well-known surfaces… the sticky note!  The process is simple, on a 3×3 sticky note, write, sketch, doodle your version of hello. Scan it in and email it to, any day of the week and then they’ll post it on their website.  Cool right!?

Now, The Hello Project & Sharpie are excited to present this month’s contest:


Submit a Hello – without using any words that mean ‘hello’ – by September 30, 2010 for a chance to win Sharpie® Pens and other cool Sharpie® prizes!


Three (3) winners will receive packages full of Sharpie® Pens, and one grand prize winner will receive a mystery pack (top secret stuff) of Sharpie goodies, not to mention the most important prize, bragging rights.


A panel of 3 undisclosed judges will select the three (3) winning submissions. Winners will be announced on Monday October 4, 2010 on The Hello Project and the Sharpie Blog.


  1. Must be handmade on a sticky note.
  2. Sticky notes can be any color.
  3. Entries must be scanned in at a resolution of no less than 600×600 pixels and sent to
  4. All entries must be received by 11:59PM CST on September 30, 2010.  
  5. There is no limit of entries per person.


Good luck and have fun!

    In worknig w/ The Hello Project, this contest is currently only open to US residents. I’ll see what I can work out for the upcoming promotions with THP & maybe we can open them up to non-US residents – so come back for the next one.

    Thanks for your questions, sorry it isn’t what you were hoping for but like I said, stay tuned!

  3. Thanks Whitney! :) Will keep an eye open for future contests, am looking forward to seeing the doodles from this one, and will of course be madly jealous of Sharpie-loot winners!! :)

    (So many contests not open to Canadian residents! Oh the sadness! What if I say I can see New York from my apartment? ;) Sadly I understand the cost of sending something over the border, I ordered from a US site _once_. Maybe… voucher-for-sharpies/gift card/online credit to [international] Sharpie vendors?)
