Book Character Pumpkin Contest

All students are invited to decorate a pumpkin representing a favorite book character. Students may bring in a small to medium size decorated pumpkin to the school media center and enter it in our contest October 24th. Pumpkins will be judged on October 28th. Pumpkins will need to be taken home on November 4th.


Contest Rules:


1. ABSOLUTELY NO CARVED PUMPKINS! Carved pumpkins will not be entered into the contest and will be sent home. Pumpkins may be painted or drawn or colored with magic markers, 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.

2. Pumpkins must represent a favorite BOOK CHARACTER. There may be only ONE (1) entry per student. Each entry should be clearly identified with an attached card including the following information: Side 1 – student’s name and grade Side 2 – storybook character, book from which the character is found, and a brief statement telling about your pumpkin character (i.e., why you chose this character, what you like about your character, etc.)

3. This is an OPTIONAL HOME PROJECT and pumpkins should be done mostly by students with minimal help from parents. Judges tend to give more points to projects where student work is obvious.

4. Do not put your name anywhere on your pumpkin.

5. Pumpkins can be entered by students in grades K-12.

6. Judging will be conducted by a panel of judges that includes faculty on October 28th. Late entries may be displayed but not entered into the contest.

7. Pumpkins will be on display in the media center from October 24th – November 4th. Any pumpkins left after November 4th will become the property of the media center and subject to being thrown away! ☺
