Bookmark Contest

2022 Bookmark Design Contest

Celebrate National Library Card Sign-Up Month by submitting your design for the 2022 Bookmark Contest. This year’s theme is More Than Books, illustrating the resources your library offers and how you have fun with your library card. Submissions do not need to be related to the theme but are preferred.

This contest is open to all ages, PreK through adult, with one winner from each age group. Winners will receive a $10 gift card to a local place and get their designs printed and distributed at the library.

Print an entry form (PDF) and start creating your beautiful art.
