Narrating Tales of Preschool Storytime

Bookmark Contest

on July 31, 2013

This summer I decided it was time to do a bookmark contest.  I got the idea from the Pendleton Public Library. A coworker of mine had visited them a few years ago and brought back some bookmarks that the kids had made.  I finally implemented it this summer and it was a HUGE hit!  I don’t even know how many forms we passed out, but it was easily over 200.  Out of those we got back 54.  I think that’s a pretty good turn out!  I told them to design a bookmark based on our Summer Reading theme “Dig Into Reading” and they all did such a great job.  There were 3 age groups: 4-7, 8-11, 12-17.  There was one winner from each age group and those winners received a $10 gift card to Target, then there was one overall winner who received a $20 gift card to Barnes and Noble Bookstore.  And of course all the winners bookmarks were made into bookmarks to be given out at the library.  Here are the winning designs, the yellow on is the overall winner:

This is definitely something I will do every summer!  Oh, and here is the handout I made to give the kids for the contest

    Very cute & awesome! Sounds like something to incorporate into next year’s SRP, not that I want to think about that already and since we just finished up yesterday!

      It’s the perfect thing for summer with the changing theme every year. Oh I know! We still have 4 more weeks of SRP here, I’m ready to be DONE 🙂
