Pumpkin Decorating Contest - Family Event

Wow! We had so many amazing pumpkins! 320 total pumpkins!

Winners will be announced Monday, October 25th. Pumpkins can be picked up starting Wednesday! Thank you to all our families who participated!

Hi Families!

We are going to call on our Mails community for a creative competition - a Pumpkin Decorating Contest! 

Here are the details:

WHAT: Decorate a pumpkin (real or plastic) as a children's book character, inspired by a children's book. Get creative! Use paint, arts and craft supplies, whatever you can think up! Please no carved pumpkins as they will not last. Any size you like! 

Please include your child/ren's name/s on the bottom of your pumpkin and the book character the pumpkin is inspired by.

WHO: All LJM families may enter - you can enter one pumpkin for your family, or one pumpkin for each student

WHERE/WHEN: Pumpkins will be displayed in the library starting October 11 through October 28 - you can bring your pumpkin to the library starting October 11. You can pick up your pumpkin to take home starting Oct. 27 (Book Character Dress Up Day) through Oct. 29.

WHY: We want to see how creative our Lisa J. Mails families are and give everyone an opportunity to create as a family. 

COMPETITION AND WINNERS: Pumpkins will be judged on October 21 and awards will be displayed next to their winning pumpkins. Pumpkins will be judged in the following categories: Most Creative, Best Use of Materials, Funniest, and Best Overall. We are making some fun creative ONE-OF-A-KIND trophies for the winners! Good luck!
