Joanne G. Yancey Library Pumpkin Contest

Grades > Pre-K to 8

It’s that time of year again where the library is getting into the fall spirit by having a pumpkin decorating contest. Darlington students and staff are invited to decorate a pumpkin like their favorite book character. It’s easy and fun for the whole family!  Students and staff may bring in a decorated pumpkin to the school library and enter it into our contest between October 20 through October 27.  All entries must be received by 4:00 PM the afternoon of October 27.

Contest Rules:

Pumpkins WILL be painted, Hot Glued, colored, Etc. Only craft pumpkins, please. 

Pumpkins should represent a favorite book character. On the entry form, please write the title and author of the book.  I would recommend getting the book information first before starting to decorate the pumpkin. 

This will be a home project and pumpkin designs should be created primarily by students.  Pre-K to 2nd grade students may work with parents to complete a pumpkin as a “family.”  Third to Eighth grade students should do most of the work themselves, with only some assistance by parents. 

Pumpkins will be judged according to the following categories in each cohort (Pre-K-2, 3-5, and 6-8):

  • True to character

  • Creative

  • Judge’s Choice

 Judging will be conducted by a panel of judges.

Prizes:  One winner in each category will be chosen. First place will receive an American Express gift card, 2nd will receive a book of their choice, and 3rd will receive candy of their choice.  

Pumpkins will be sent home by November 12.
