Thatcher Hall Library Pumpkin Decorating Contest


Grades > Pre-K to 8

 Dear Parents, Students, and Teachers,

This year, 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 starting Monday, October 22.  All entries must be received by 3:30 PM the afternoon of October 30th.  Entry forms can be found in the library and at Mrs. Payne's desk. 

Contest Rules:

1.  Pumpkins will be painted, hot glued, colored, Etc.  Please use FAKE PUMPKINS this year as real ones will rot, attract bugs, and smell.

2.  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 even starting to decorate the pumpkin. **

3.  This will be a home project and pumpkins should be done mostly by students.  Pre-K thru 2nd grade students may work with parents to complete a pumpkin as a “family.”  3rd-8th grade students should do most of the work themselves, with only some assistance by parents.  

4.  Pumpkins will be judged according to the following categories:

  • Pre-K thru 2nd Grade “Family” Pumpkins

  • 3rd Grade thru 5th Grade Student Pumpkins

  • 6th Grade thru 8th Grade Student Pumpkins

  • Faculty & Staff Pumpkins     

 5. Judging will be conducted by a panel of judges. 

 6. Prizes:  One winner in each category will be chosen.  Each winner will receive a $20 Gift Card to Barnes and Noble.   

 7. Pumpkins will be sent home by Friday, November 2.
