The Lake County Library System is proud to announce the 13th annual Bookmark Design Contest for K-12 students and adults. This year’s theme will be ¡Viva Libros! to support the annual Lake County BookFest which will take place from March 11-16, 2013. Libraries are planning activities and events that celebrate Florida's 500th anniversary throughout the year, joining with Viva Florida 500, a state wide initiative to promote Florida’s diverse heritage and 500 years of history, the longest recorded history of any state in our country.
All students (K-12) and adults in Lake County are encouraged to enter as many times as they wish. Winning Designs will be unveiled after the awards presentation on Friday, March 15 at 6:30 p.m. during the Authors' Reception at the W.T. Bland Public Library and will be visible on this website at that time. The winning bookmark designs will then be available at all 15 libraries in the Lake County Library System, and will be printable from the library system’s web site. Prizes will include gift cards for First through Third place winners.
