Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Edinburgh Wright-Hageman Public Library Pumpkin Decorating Contest

This year the Edinburgh Wright-Hageman Public Library is getting into the Fall spirit by having a pumpkin decorating contest. We invite all ages to decorate a pumpkin like their favorite book character. It's easy and fun for the whole family!

Important Dates

-Drop off pumpkins with entry forms during regular hours between Thursday, October 13th and Saturday, October 22th. NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED.

-Judging in library and on Facebook will take place the week of October 24th through the 27th. Winners will be announced on Friday, October 28th.

-Pumpkins MUST BE PICKED UP by Friday, October 31st or they will be discarded.

Contest Rules:

Carved pumpkins rot, attract bugs, and smell. Carved pumpkins will not be entered into the contest and will be discarded.

-Pumpkins should be decorated in a manner appropriate for a library setting. On the entry form you must have your name, age, address, phone number, and description of your pumpkin. 

-Let your creativity soar! Pumpkins are to be painted or colored with markers--acrylic paints or permanent markers work best. Watercolors tend to run. Yarn, construction paper, pipe cleaners, etc. may be used to decorate the pumpkin; paste or glue may also be used.

-Do not write your name anywhere on the pumpkin. We will take your pumpkin and entry form when you drop it off and it will be assigned a number.

-Pumpkins will be judged according to the following categories:

         -Most Creative/Artistic


-Prizes will be awarded in four age groups:

1.  Ages 2 through 6 years old

2.  Ages 7 through 12 years old

3.  Ages 13 through 17 years old

4.  Ages 18 and up

-Judging is by popular vote by patrons in the library and on our Facebook page. There can be only one vote per category per person.
