Over 170 students from across Tennessee submitted an original design for TASL’s annual bookmark contest. The theme of this year’s contest was “Making Connections at Your School Library, “ which was the theme for AASL’s School Library Month. Student entries were judged by local illustrator Kris Sexton, in the categories of creativity, execution of the theme and use of materials. Kris said, “It was great seeing the artwork of so many creative and talented students!”
Winners receive a $25 cash award, 50 bookmarks of their design, and an award certificate. Librarians of the winners will receive 200 bookmarks and an enlargement.
Honorable Mention winners receive 25 bookmarks of their design and an award certificate. Their respective school librarians receive 100 bookmarks plus an enlargement.
The bookmarks will be distributed to legislators on TN Library Legislative Day, National Library Legislative Day, and at TASL’s annual conference in September. Thanks to all the students who entered and to all the librarians for promoting the contest and sending in student entries.
