Jonny Quest launches safety promo
The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest is taking part in promoting safety. The program, which airs weekday afternoons on TBS Superstation, is tied in to the Quest for Safety promotion by the Safe America Foundation, TBS Superstation and Holiday Inn. From October 9 to November 4, children ages eight to 14 are invited to submit essays about how they practise safety or safety issues that they consider important. Chosen by a panel of public safety and community leaders, the "Safest Kid in America" will win a ride on the Quest for Safety float with characters from The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest in the January 1 Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California. The winner's essay will also appear on the TBS Superstation kids programming Web site (www.turner.com/disaster). Second-prize winners will receive bike helmets, T-shirts and Jonny Quest label pins.
