The official crayon of...


Recommended Posts

This is just such a great story it has to be told.

Seems that not long ago, the Crayola folks decided to issue a special limited-edition box of 50 Crayola crayons...one representing each of the 50 U.S. states. They had a contest and asked kids to send in suggestions for the color their state's crayon should be.

Well, the winners were announced not long ago and a 9-year-old girl from Northeast Ohio won for her name for Ohio's official crayon color. As a result, each box of the limited edition "state crayons" will contain one in her chosen color.

What does all this have to do with us? Well...the color created by this clever-beyond-her-years girl, the official Crayola crayon color of the State of Ohio, is...(drum roll please...


Now tell me that wasn't the best color idea in the whole box!!!!

That is so freaking cool! Here's a LINK to the official Crayola website where you can order a box.

The contest rules stated that you needed to rename an existing color and write a description that "describes something notable about any of the 50 U.S. states based on landmarks, cities, state symbols, people, historical events or geographic features." It's obvious that this color came from both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and one of Ohio's most famous foursomes :-)
