Design-A-Bookmark Contest for Grades 7-12

8th Annual Contest for Teens

What do you like best about the Library? Checking out the latest releases from your favorite authors or music artists? Playing games on the computer? Hanging with your friends in a comfortable place?

Whatever it is, create a design on a library- or book-related theme, and enter our annual Design-a-Bookmark Contest for teens. You can view last years' winners and runners-up by clicking the links above.

Download an entry form (pdf) or pick one up at any Springfield-Greene County Library or the Mobile Library beginning February 1. Deadline for entries is March 15.

Three winners and three runners-up will be selected in each category: Grades 7-8, 9-10 and 11-12.

An award reception will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 17 in the Library Center auditorium.

Winners in each grade category will receive a $25 gift card to Hobby Lobby and winning designs will be made into colorful, glossy bookmarks that will be printed and distributed to the public.

Winning entries and runners-up will be featured on the Library's website.
