John’s Crazy Socks accepting entries for annual Sock Design Contest

The world’s largest sock store is now accepting entries for its fourth annual Sock Design Contest.

John’s Crazy Socks, a Farmingdale-based sock business founded by a young man with Down syndrome and his father, will award the winner a $1,000 cash prize, and feature their design for sale on their online store. A charity partner will be chosen to receive 10 percent of the profits from the sales of this new sock, as part of the company’s Giving Back Program.

The second and third-place winners will receive John’s Crazy Socks gift certificates and be featured along with their designs on the company’s social media pages.

“Our customers have great ideas for socks,” said John Cronin, co-founder of John’s Crazy Socks. “I can’t wait to see the designs they will submit for our contest.”

Last year’s winning design came from Jerome Scriptunas of Freehold, New Jersey, who put tree images on a sock, inspiring the company’s Plant Trees Athletic Crew Socks. The socks support John’s Crazy Socks’ new charity partner, the New York Restoration Project, a nonprofit nature conservancy stewarding parks, community gardens, and green space throughout New York City.

“Our annual sock design contest is a way to personally connect with our wonderful customers. It also provides them with an avenue to highlight charities and organizations that are important to them. As a social enterprise, we are always looking to collaborate and give back to charities around the world,” said Mark Cronin, co-founder of John’s Crazy Socks.

Entrants must be 18 years and older and must create their own designs. Those under 18 must have their application submitted by a parent or guardian. The deadline for entry submissions is Thursday, August 15. To enter or find out more, visit the sock design contest webpage:
