Design a bookmark competition

Calling all young, aspiring artists and designers!

Hawkesbury Library Service is running a new competition for primary school children to create a bookmark that promotes reading and design. Winning entries will be added to the Hawkesbury Library Service website and copies of the bookmark will be available from the Libraries.

The competition is open to children who live in the Hawkesbury Local Government Area or who attend school in the local area. The categories are Kindergarten to Year 2, Year 3 to 4 and Year 5 to 6. Entries will be judged on creativity, originality and printability. A winner and runner up will be chosen from each of the three categories. Winners will receive a prize and the winning designs will be professionally printed and launched at Hawkesbury Library Service during Book Week 2020 which will be 17 to 23 October 2020.

Entering is easy! Just download entry form from the Hawkesbury Library website or collect an entry form from the Hawkesbury Central Library, Windsor or Richmond Branch Library. Draw your design on the template provided and then return the completed entry either by email or in person to either of the libraries.

Library staff are excited to be running this bookmark design competition for the first time, the Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Barry Calvert said.

“I know we have very creative young people in the Hawkesbury and we’re all looking forward to seeing a fantastic range of entries,” Mayor Calvert said.

“Winning entries from Hawkesbury children will be displayed and made available in our Libraries.”

Entries close 5pm Friday, 25 September 2020. Entries may be submitted in person at Hawkesbury Central Library, 300 George Street, Windsor or Richmond Branch Library, 29 West Market Street, Richmond or may be scanned at printable resolution and emailed to
