Winnsboro Center for the Arts presents a Children’s Bookmark Contest in conjunction with the 2022 Winnsboro Festival of Books. Children in grades K – 5 are invited to design bookmarks showing their favorite book or story. The deadline to enter the contest is April 1, 2022. Winners will be notified that they have won by April 15.
The bookmark designs will be judged by professional artists and the first-place winner will have their bookmark design printed as a real bookmark and distributed in the community for promotional purposes and at the 2022 Winnsboro Festival of Books on May 7 on Market St. in Winnsboro, Texas. Second place, third place, and honorable mention will be displayed at the festival. The bookmark designs will be judged based on originality, creativity, technique, and how well they show their favorite book or story. Students can use any type of art to create their bookmark designs including paint, colored pencil, marker, etc.
The arts increase self-confidence, enhance creativity, and communication skills; stories and literacy are a vital part of children’s development.
The winners will be celebrated at the 2022 Winnsboro Festival of Books, and the festival will include many exciting children’s activities including hosting children’s authors, a story walk, Storytime art activities, and free books for children!
