May perhaps marks once-a-year Summertime Bookmark Contest at Byrd’s Publications

Each individual yr for the duration of the thirty day period of May well, Bethel’s Byrd’s Books hosts a Summer Bookmark Contest – 2021 marks its 7th! Equally Young ones and grownups are invited to structure a bookmark centered on a e-book they appreciate. Guest judges chosen by Bethel Arts will opt for a winner and runner-up in every of five classes/age groups (grades pre-K – 2nd 3rd – 5th 6th – 8th 9th – 12th and Adult). Then, Byrd’s Publications prints100 each and every of the successful bookmarks and employs them to give out all summer very long.


The 5 winners get a $25 present certificate to Byrd’s Books and 25 of their bookmarks to give absent. Honorable mentions get a $10 gift certificate. The winning creations will be displayed in the bookstore and declared to the area media.


The contest operates all over the thirty day period of Might, so you have lots of time to enter by the  deadline. Only a single submission for every human being is allowed. Academics are particularly urged to motivate college student participation – a good classroom task that celebrates Artwork and local community! Instructions for distributing all bookmarks are on the entry variety, which can be found by visiting https://little or stopping in at Byrd’s Books, , adjacent to The Toy Home and throughout the road from the Bethel Community Library. 


To study extra about bookmarks and, maybe, obtain style inspiration, go to the Global Good friends of Bookmarks’ website web site at info, the supply of the vintage bookmark pictured over.
