DESIGN A BOOKMARK CONTEST FOR GRADES K-12

Our 25th Annual Design-a-Bookmark Contest!

For Kids, Teens and Adults

Contest Starts February 1 • Deadline for Entries March 15

The Library's Design-a-Bookmark Contest Turns 25 in 2024!

Since 1999, we've been asking youth to share original designs that promote and inspire literacy, and we've received thousands of amazing submissions over the years. Many aspiring artists have now grown up — and may still be artists! To honor all of our talented participants, the 2024 Design-A-Bookmark Contest will be open to kids in kindergarten through 12th grade and adults.

Winners and runners-up will be notified and receive invitations to the Bookmark Contest Reception in April.

Winning entries for each age category will be printed for distribution, the winner will get a certificate and a gift card to Hobby Lobby. Bookmarks will also be revealed on this website.
