As you may know, we have had a bookmark contest every May for the last nine years- now we are doing it again! Draw a picture of your favorite book and enter to see your bookmark in print! The contest runs from Wednesday May 1st to Friday May 31st. The entrants are judged by Bethel Arts and we get the winners printed.


Design a bookmark inspired by your favorite book!


You could win a gift certificate for $25.00 and 25 of your bookmarks in print for you to give to friends and WE will pass out the five winning designs all summer!

Note- the size of the space for the bookmark is actually 2 inches wide by 6 inches high and may be attached. One entry per person.
