How: Create a Smiley Monster using oral health products.

For National Smile Month 2022 we have got a competition the whole family can get involved in – a Smiley Monster competition!

The rules are simple – we want you to create a monster that is either partially or wholly made out of oral health products. Whether it be floss harps, toothbrushes or mouthwash bottles it doesn’t matter as long as it’s colourful, creative and has a smile!

It’s that easy.

We will be giving shout outs to our favourite entries throughout the campaign so make sure to post a picture on social media along with the relevant hashtags so we can easily find yours!

Furthermore, this competition has been kindly sponsored by Oral B, with the winner of each category receiving an Oral B electric toothbrush suitable for their age.

Age categories

We are going to be splitting the competition into four categories with prizes for the top entry in each category. The categories will be based on the age of those entering and are as follows:

  • Category A – ages 5 - 7 years old

  • Category B – ages 8 - 11 years old

  • Category C – 12 – 15 years old

  • Category D – 16+ years old

How to enter

Create a smiley monster using oral health products and craft materials. The monster must be either partially or wholly made out of oral health products and must have a distinctive smile.

Post the photo on either Twitter or Facebook during National Smile Month (16th May – 16th June 2022) along with the hashtags #SmileMonth and #SmileyMonster. Make sure to include the age of the entrant so that we know what age category it is for.

Alternatively, you can email us your entry along with your name and contact telephone number to [email protected]

Entries are now open and will close on 16th June 2022.

The winners of each category will be announced during the week commencing Monday 5th July 2022.
