Gap casting call: Who are the brightest kids in North America?

PeopleAbinta Malik, SVP, Gap OnlineComment

Calling all cuties! Gap's Casting Call is back, and this time it's about "being bright" -- so does your kid brighten up the world?

Then you should enter the contest by submitting a photo of him or her (ages infant through 12 years) and a description of how they do it. Maybe it's his smile that melts hearts, or her dedication to a cause in your community that inspires people around her -- give their light a chance to shine!

Art Peck, president of Gap North America, says “This year, we want to go beyond the photo to learn more about who these children are and how they’re connecting with the world around them.” Four grand prize winners will receive a professional photo shoot, a $1,000 Gap GiftCard, and the opportunity to be featured in a Gap marketing campaign. Gap will also give a $10,000 grant in each of the four winner's names to Communities In Schools.

Now through April 22, submissions are accepted at, Gap’s Facebook page, or via the Gap Casting Call app available for iPhone and Android.
