2016 Book Character Pumpkin Decorating Contest

We had so much fun decorating pumpkins like book characters last year, we decided to do it again! Entries may be dropped off at the library with their entry forms from Monday, October 17th through 1:00 on Monday, October 24th. The contest will be over by Wednesday, October 26th. There is no school on October 27th-28th due to the PEITF Convention.  Pumpkins must be taken home by the end of the day on Wednesday, October 26th, or they will be thrown out. (Last year we had a large number of fruit flies enjoying the pumpkins!)


  • You may use pumpkins or gourds or both to create your project.
  • There can be absolutely no carved entries. Pumpkins/gourds that have carved, poked, or punctured skin will be disqualified. To decorate you can use paper, glue, paint, markers, pipe cleaners, fabric, or other craft items on the pumpkin. BE CREATIVE!
  • You can use artificial pumpkins (available at craft stores) or real ones.
  • Projects must represent a book character from a book/graphic novel. On the entry form you must write the title and author of the book, and bring the book or a picture of the book cover to display with your pumpkin/gourds.
  • This is a home project and entries should be done mostly by the students, but parents or other family members may help.
  • Do not write your name anywhere on the project.
  • When you bring your pumpkin to Mrs. Dunn, she will take your pumpkin and entry form and assign it a number.
  • All projects should be picked up by October 27th. Those that remain past this date will be thrown away.

Categories will be:
-Kindergarten – Grade 3
-Grade 4 – Grade 6
-Grade 7 – Grade 9
-Family (If there are siblings in different grades who would like to                                                    work on this together, they can enter the “Family” Category)

Students and staff will vote for their favorite pumpkin in each category.

Check out the video below to see the pumpkins created last year,

Any students, staff, or classes who are interested can get an entry form from Mrs. Dunn when they bring in their pumpkin
