Pumpkin Fun for Everyone

Dear Parents, Students and Teachers,

This year the library is getting into the fall spirit by having a decorated pumpkin contest of your favorite book character or your favorite book.  It’s easy and fun for the whole family.  Students may bring in a decorated pumpkin to the school library and enter it into our contest.  Pumpkins may be dropped off at the library only from October 24-27.  Look online at Pinterest to see examples.

Read our contest rules carefully:

·        ABSOLUTELY NO CARVED PUMPKINS!!! Carved pumpkins rot, attract bugs, and smell.  Most importantly, we do not want a child handling a knife or carving tools.  Carved pumpkins will not be entered into the contest and will be sent home immediately.  Pumpkins may be painted, etc.  Let your creativity soar!

·         Pumpkins should represent a favorite book or book character. On the entry form (on the back of this paper) you must have the title and author of the book written on the form.

·         **I would recommend getting the book information first before even starting to decorate the pumpkin.**

·         This is a home project and pumpkins should be done mostly by the students but parents may assist.  It would be a fun project to do as a whole family!

·         Do not write your name anywhere on the pumpkin.  When you bring your pumpkin to Ms. Filip, the librarian, she will take your pumpkin and entry form so to properly identify it.

·         Pumpkins will be judged according to the following categories:

K-1, 2-3, 4-5, Family

*The family category is for any family that would like to submit one decorated pumpkin for the whole family.  This category may be of interest to families that have more than one child at our school.

·         Judging will be conducted by a panel of judges.

·         Prizes: Winners in each category will be presented with a trophy for first, second and third.  Everyone that enters will get a certificate.

·         Pumpkins may be taken home from the library on Friday the October 28th.  Any pumpkin remaining on this day will be discarded.
