Middle and high school students under the age of 19 attending public, private or home school in the Payson area are invited to enter the Payson Public Library's "Design a Bookmark" contest.
Contestants may submit one entry each, which must be 2 inches by 7 inches. Templates and entry forms are available at the library, 328 N. McLane, or entries may be made on your own paper. The design must be related to reading. Bookmarks must be hand-drawn, not computer generated. All artwork must be original.
Judging will be based on creativity, design, neatness, artistic quality and adherence to the theme of reading. Text is as important as artwork. Wording should be original.
There will be first, second and third place winners from both middle and high school age students. The prize for first place is $50, second place is $25, and third place is $15. First place winners will have their designs copied and distributed at the library. All winning entries will be displayed at the library. Deadline for entries is Nov. 15 at 5 p.m. Winners will be announced on Nov. 22. Call Harryette Stanley or MaryLynn Behrens at 474-0637.
