Shoebox book float contest

The Grand County Library District is holding its 12th Annual Book Float Contest. This popular activity for elementary age children uses imagination and creativity as children craft a miniature display based on the theme of a favorite book.

The rules are simple. Decorate a shoe box (or other box of similar size) with a scene based on a favorite book or a character in a book.  Label the entry with the title of the book, the author and your grade. Complete an application and waiver available from any Grand County library branch.   Return the completed float and application to your closest branch by May 6th.

Winners from each branch will be chosen in five categories: most creative, best use of materials, best interpretation, most colorful, and the people’s choice.  Everyone is invited to join in the judging.  Come by the library after May 6th, view the entries, and cast a vote. 

Winners will be announced on May 13th.
