May 14 – July 14, 2018
Unleash your creativity with HCLS’ bookmark contest. The contest is open to all students in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade who live or attend school in Howard County. Children who attend home school or who attend a school without grade levels should enter the comparable grade level. Bookmarks judged on originality, design, and reproducibility. Winning bookmarks become the property of Howard County Library System. They will be printed and distributed as HCLS bookmarks, used in other Library related materials, and posted on the HCLS web site.
The 2018 contest runs through July 14.
