The Bookmark Art Starter Kit contains:
two promotional posters, both in PNG and PDF formats (not editable)
bookmark art template, editable in PowerPoint
voting ballots (four different designs), editable in PowerPoint
How the Bookmark Art Contest works:
Students use the bookmark art templates to design their bookmarks. You can base the designs on a theme, or just let the kids go wild with their designs.
Allow about a month for students to decorate bookmarks and turn in their favorite bookmark design. Designating a creation station area in the library will increase the number of entries you receive.
On the designated Voting Day, number the bookmarks (space at the bottom of each bookmark template) and put all the bookmarks out on a table or countertop. The voting should be anonymous, so no one should write their name on the front of the bookmark.
Students vote for their favorites on the ballots.
Tally the votes!
The bookmarks that receive the most votes should be printed professionally through a local printer such as Staples or Office Depot. Be sure to use high-quality, thick bookmark paper. I usually print 50 bookmarks in 12-18 designs, depending on how many entries we receive.
The winning bookmark artists each get 15 of their own design to give to family and friends.
The remaining 35 of each bookmark stay in the library to give out to students.
I regularly add new products for school librarians and English teachers, particularly for middle school, to my store. All my new products are half-off for the first 48 hours.
