Artists and Designers!

Would you like to design a bookmark for the Learning Commons?? 

As you know, we LOVE to provide fun bookmarks to our students.  Now it’s your turn to design one!!

All artwork needs to be original and creative!  It should relate to books, Learning Commons, reading, ECMS, positivity, or anything else that you think would be appropriate for a bookmark!

The student who creates the best original bookmark will win a prize from the Learning Commons.
Also, the winning bookmark will be made into a REAL bookmark and distributed in the Learning Commons.

Stop by the Learning Commons desk to pick up a blank bookmark to design.

All entries are due no later than Friday, January 31st.

Good luck!
