Youth Art Month Contest

Oceans of Possibilities Youth Art Contest Winners

Winners from left to right include: Ben McClary, Zoa Barker, Emilee Allsop, Mackenzie Wood (top), Remy Niederman (bottom), and Lola Burkson 

In March we asked children to create original artwork using the theme of our summer reading games––Oceans of Possibilities! As usual, you did not disappoint, submitting over 70 pieces of artwork to the contest!

Our staff members were pleased to receive so many creative and imaginative entries.

“It certainly made the decision tough––we ended up choosing six winners!” said Ginny Hosler, a librarian, and the contest’s programmer.

The six winning pieces will be made into collectible summer reading prize bookmarks. Children who participate in the games will receive a bookmark as their 10-point prize.

But we’re not stopping there! “There were so many great submissions that we decided to showcase all of the entries at the Downtown Library this summer. We hope everyone will come and see just how creative our community is!” Hosler said.

You can check out the submissions in person when the free all-ages summer reading games begin on May 23! Pick up a game board at the Downtown Library, Ellettsville Branch, or on the Bookmobile! Then, read for fun, complete activities, and attend events to earn prizes! Learn more about the all-ages games.

The summer reading games are generously supported by the Friends of the Library Foundation. This year, the Friends will donate $1,000 to the Community Kitchen of Monroe County when we meet our registration goal of 1,000 people.
