Bookmark Contest

The entry period for the 2018 Bookmark Contest is now over. Thank you for your submissions.

Winners will be announced on March 20, so stay tuned!

How the contest works

  • Your local public library will choose a winner for each of four grade categories (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12).
  • Local finalists will each receive his/her bookmark framed.
  • The four winning entries from each library will be entered into the final districtwide, grand-prize-winning contest.
  • The grand-prize-winning bookmarks become property of the library district and will be displayed on the library’s website and printed for library use.

Bookmarks will be judged on:

  • Design
  • Originality
  • Reproducibility
