Book Character Pumpkin Decorating Contest 

Contest Rules 

  • The theme for the contest is “My Favorite Book Character.” You may choose any character from a book you have read or heard (no TV / cartoon characters, please). 

  • Pumpkins are to be painted or colored, NOT carved. Acrylic paints or permanent markers work best. Watercolors tend to run. Yarn, construction paper, pipe cleaners, etc., may be used to decorate the pumpkin. 

  • Carved pumpkins CANNOT be accepted into the contest, sorry. They rot and attract bugs. We encourage entries that are not overly ripe or soft since they will be displayed for the week. 

  • One entry per student is allowed, clearly identified on a 3”x5” index card with: 1) Name of the book character on the front of the card 2) Student’s name, grade, and HR teacher on the back of the card. 

  • All entries should be brought into the library 10/17-10/21, where they will be on display. No late entries will be accepted

  • The winning pumpkins will be announced ON 10/31. All pumpkins should be picked up by the end of this day.

  • Participation in this contest is completely voluntary. The project can be done independently OR as a family project. Students choosing to participate are responsible for providing their own pumpkin and decorating materials. 

  • All students and staff are eligible to participate.
