Your Community: Bookmark Design Contest winners

The Friends of Johnson County Library are pleased to name the winners of the 2020 Bookmark Design Contest. “They’re so wonderful,” exclaims Friends president Jennifer Curtiss, “and I collect a new set every year. They’re a great way to get creative people of all ages interested in our excellent Library system.”

The annual competition is generously supported by the Friends of Johnson County Library. This year, they accepted more than 400 original illustrations in seven age categories from Preschool to Adult. Accepted media were colored pencil; marker; crayon; gouache; tempera; oil; acrylic; finger-paint; chalk; watercolor; pen-and-ink; on paper only. Designs, drawings and images must be made by hand only, and the original art must be submitted.
