March is Youth Art Month and the Fargo Public Library is commemorating creativity with a Design-a-Bookmark Contest for teens. Stop by any library locations starting Thursday, March 1, and pick up an entry form. Fill the space with your most brilliant creation and return it to any library location before closing on Saturday, March 31. For the teen contest, two winners will be selected – one for each age group: 13 to 15 years and 16 to 18 years. Teens can submit up to two designs and the entries will be displayed at the Dr. James Carlson Library branch. The top designs (as voted on by library staff) will be announced in April. They will also be made into full color bookmarks that will be printed and distributed throughout the following year at library branches and special events. The contest is open to teens, ages 13 to 18. To enter, pick up an entry form at an Fargo Public Library location. For more information, contact the Teen Librarian at 701.476.5978 or visit the Teen page.
There is also a design contest for children, ages 12 and younger.
