Bookmark contest

Bookmark Contest 2020, February 1–29, Grades K–12

Show us your creative side and enter the 2020 FVRLibraries Bookmark Contest! Your local library will be accepting entries from February 1-29.

Who can enter?

Children and teens in grades K-12 who live or attend school or are homeschooled in Clark, Skamania or Klickitat County, Yale Valley Library District, or the Woodland School District may enter.

How does the contest work?

  • Create your bookmark on the official form (available at the library or as a downloadable PDF in English or español).
  • Return your completed form to your local library or bookmobile between February 1 and 29.
  • Each library will pick finalists in five grade categories: K-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-8, and 9-12. Local finalists will receive their bookmark framed.
  • The finalists from each library will be entered into a district-wide contest, and the district winners will be announced on March 18.
  • The five district winners will receive an art supply kit and four art lessons courtesy of Medallion Art School.
  • The winning bookmarks become property of the library district and will be displayed on the library's website and printed for library use.

What will the bookmarks be judged on?

  • We're looking for design, originality, and reproducibility for printing.
  • There's no theme this year, so your design is limited only by your imagination.
  • The art must be your own original work, with no adult contributions.
  • For more guidelines, see the official entry form.
