More than 170 bookmark designs were created and submitted by area youngsters for the Fargo Public Library’s annual “Design a Bookmark Contest” in March. The contest, to help celebrate March’s designation as Youth Art Month, was open to kids ages birth through age 12. Categories for the entries were broken into the following age groups: birth to age 5, ages 6 to 8, and ages 9 to 12. The Fargo Public Library is pleased to announce the winning artists in each category are:
- Birth to age 5: Elizabeth Gong
- Ages 6 to 8: Violet Slininger
- Ages 9 to 12: Evan Knoll
The winning entries will be on display at the downtown Main Library. Each winning design will be printed in full color and distributed at all three Fargo Public Library locations and at various library events over the next year. Images of the three winning designs may also be viewed on the library’s Facebook page.
