Do you have a budding young artist at your house? Starting March 1, entries are being accepted for the Fargo Public Library’s annual Design a Bookmark Contest for kids. The contest, to help celebrate March’s designation as Youth Art Month, is open to kids ages birth through age 12, and runs March 1 through March 31. Entry forms and contest rules can be picked up at any Fargo Public Library location and are also available on the library’s website, www.fargolibrary.org starting March 1. Entries will be accepted at all three library locations and must be turned in on or before Tuesday, March 31.
Three winners will be selected – one for each age group: 0 to 5 years, 6 to 8 years, and 9 to 12 years; children are welcome to submit up to three designs. All design entries will be displayed in the children’s department at the Main Library. Library staff will vote to determine the winners of the contest; winners will be announced April 10. Winning bookmark entries will be printed and distributed at all library locations. The winning originals will be put on permanent display at the downtown Main Library.
