Children and teens are invited to celebrate books, reading, and art by participating in the Garfield Library’s Design a Bookmark Contest. But hurry, the deadline for entries is Monday, November 30. Be creative and have fun, but please use your original artwork.
Participants will compete in the following age categories for a chance to see their bookmark designs featured at the library. Two winners from each age group will be announced:
- Ages 6 & under
- Ages 7-10
- Ages 11-15
- Ages 16-18
Designs may be created using crayons, colored pencils, markers, paint and watercolors. Computer generated designs will not be accepted. Finished bookmarks can be dropped off at the Garfield Library during open hours or in the book drop.
Entries will then be displayed at the library where community members will vote on their favorite design during the month of December. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, December 30 and designs will be printed and distributed at the Garfield Library.
