    LOS ANGELES, CA, May 17, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- For Allergy Awareness month, Wild Indigo Publishing has launched an Extraordinary Kids contest with prizes including a new iPad 3.

Based on the theme song Extraordinary, from the book The Princess and the Peanut: A Royally Allergic Fairytale , contest entrants will create videos showing how allergies affect their world and what makes them Extraordinary Kids. Their testimony will be followed by their own rendition of Jackie Henderson's allergy song.

The contest details can be found on Facebook at:

The Princess and the Peanut: A Royally Allergic Fairytale by Sue Ganz-Schmitt helps kids ages 4-9 learn about food allergies through a fairytale classic with an allergic twist.

Sue is a global philanthropist and also the author of Even Superheroes Get Diabetes. She has made it her mission to help children and families worldwide and to address kids' serious medical problems with lighthearted yet informative stories. Both books are illustrated by artist and award-winning filmmaker Micah Chambers-Goldberg.

Jacky Henderson has a BA in Music and develops musical education programs for children. She has performed for Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, and Bill Clinton among many others.

When Jacky first read The Princess and the Peanut, she immediately offered to write a theme song as the book spoke to her own allergies and sensitivities.

"Allergy awareness saves lives", says Sue. "We will use material from the top submissions to build a fun and inspiring music video that shows what it is like to live with allergies, and how to rise above them."

Entering the contest is free and open to familiesin the U.S. living with or around an allergic child. Adults 18 or older must enter on behalf of their children, and must be on Facebook.

Entries will be accepted through June 13, 2012. Extraordinary Kids contest winners will be announced by June 26, 2012.
