Design Guidelines

1. One entry per student; The theme for the challenge is: Storybook Characters

2. Pumpkins may NOT be carved. Pumpkins may be painted, drawn or colored with magic markers, paints, etc. but NOT carved. Acrylic paints or permanent markers work best. Watercolors tend to run. Yarn, pipe cleaners, fabric scraps, cardboard, glitter, construction paper, etc. may be used to decorate the pumpkin. Paste or glue may also be used. There are many cute ideas on Pinterest!!

3. Entry should be accompanied by a folded card that will be placed beside the design including the following information:

  • Student Name (or Family name for multiple siblings), Grade Level and Section
  • Storybook Character Name
  • Book Title
  • Author/Illustrator

4. Designs are due on Monday, October 24 (7:45-3:00pm) Please bring them directly to the library.

5. Pumpkins must be picked up on Friday, October 28th by 3:00pm. Pumpkins not picked up by the above date and time will be discarded. Sorry, absolutely no exceptions. Please plan accordingly.

6. Small prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Community Judges will be voting based on design originality and creativity. The decisions of the judges are final.
