Tulsa Senior Center Offers Prize For Unique Photos With Flat Simone
TULSA, Oklahoma -
Those who grew up taking pictures with paper cut-outs of Flat Stanley may get a sense of nostalgia with Flat Simone, Tulsa's Saint Simeon's Senior Community's version of the popular book character.
Through the end of June, anyone can take pictures with Simone -- or rather, a paper cut-out of Saint Simeon's golden retriever -- in Tulsa or anywhere in the world as part of the community's Flat Simone competition.
The competition is inspired by The Flat Stanley Project, started in 1995 by Dale Hubert, which features paper cut-outs based on the title character of the 1964 children's book "Flat Stanley."
The most interesting or unique photo taken with Flat Simone will win a $300 Southwest Airline gift card.
People have taken pictures with Flat Simone in Saudi Arabia, on the set of Wheel of Fortune, at New York City's Metropolitan Museum, Costa Rica and more.
Photos may be posted to the competition via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #SimoneSaintSimeons.
