Muriel and I, along with Lisa Greenleaf, our Apprentice Shop bookdesigner/illustrator participated in the judging of the 2009 Massachusetts School Library Association's bookmark contest for kids K - 12 on Thursday. The winners can be viewed here. The theme this year is "School Libraries: Learning for Life."
It was a lovely afternoon spent with school librarians and children's writers and illustrators. The children's artwork was fun, colorful, and quite imaginative. The winners and the honorable mentions will be honored on April 2 at Legislative Day being held at the State House in Boston.
The lucky winners will receive bookstore gift certificates, an enlargement of their bookmark, a tour of the MA State House, and more! Congratulations to all!
Division I winner.
This was done by a first grader!
