Monarch's Book Character Pumpkin Contest

Art and Library teachers are teaming up to host a book character pumpkin contest! Students, choose your favorite BOOK character, and paint OR carve them on your pumpkin! Pumpkins will be put on display OUTSIDE and voted on by the school and community. The best pumpkins will receive a small prize. If you are interested in participating, follow these instructions:

    1. Choose your favorite book character
    2. Complete an ENTRY FORM by October 20th, 2021. We need the entry forms completed in advance so we can get the display areas ready for the pumpkins.
    3. Use paint (or other supplies) to make that pumpkin look like that characterpumpkins and jack-o-lanterns

 

  1. Drop off your pumpkin Wednesday, October 27th, 3:15-4:15 pm with the Art and Library teachers. If you have to drop off after hours, there will be a placeholder for your pumpkin and instructions displayed for you to follow. Pumpkins will be grouped by grade level. Make sure your pumpkin is set up before Thursday morning, or it will not get any votes.

You MUST complete an entry form prior to the drop-off date! We have to make sure we have room for all of the pumpkins. No last-minute pumpkins will be allowed. Pumpkins will be voted on by students on Thursday, October 28th during school. The community will be able to vote Thursday evening. Pumpkins can be picked up Friday after 3:15 pm.
