Bookmark Contest

Nov 24, 2014

Vromans bookmark contest_cHow cool would it be if your little one’s drawing was found in books all over San Gabriel Valley?

Vroman’s Bookstore is holding its annual bookmark contest and the winning 2 selections will be printed on bookmarks that will be in circulation for an entire year.

The contest is open to children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade or 4th-6th grades. The winners will receive a $50 Vroman’s gift card, 50 copies of their bookmark to hand out as they wish, and enough bookmarks for their entire school class.

Past winners, we’re told, used bold colors, and Vroman’s wants the images (and their bookmarks) to stand out—so don’t hold back! The theme of the drawing should be about books and reading (rather than about a particular holiday, for example). The template is on the rules and details page (see Vroman’s link below), and it is suggested that the image be sketched on a blank page first, though we imagine you can copy the template innumerable times until the “right” image has been attained.

Good luck to all young artists’ entries and we’ll keep an eye out for the new bookmarks in the coming year!
