Do you have a young artist in the family? Right now Vroman’s Bookstore is accepting art entries into a contest for the bookmarks that the store will give away during 2018. There’s a contest for children currently in Kinder through 3rd grade, and another one for children now 4th through 6th grade. Do you know someone who would like to participate? Read the specifics below.
The drawing should be about Books and Reading. It should be bright and colorful, as those are usually the ones that win. The temptation right now is to draw something related to the holidays, but please don’t, because the bookmarks will be used throughout the entire 2018. The deadline is Jan. 23, 2018, and the entries must be taken to Vroman’s Children’s Department at 695 E. Colorado Blvd., or to the Hastings Ranch store at 3729 E. Foothill Blvd. The entry form can be downloaded here.
The winner will get a $50 Vroman’s gift certificate, 50 copies of the bookmark to give away to family and friends, and another bunch to take to school for teachers and classmates. All youngsters are welcome to participate, with the exception of the artists who won this same contest in the past two years.
Invite the little ones in your life to give it a shot. It would make for a fantastic experience!
Meanwhile, take your little ones to the Vroman’s main store in Colorado this Saturday, Dec. 2, at 11 am, for the Winter Wonderland event, which will feature crafts, treats, and a chance for pictures with Santa. Make it early at 10 am and enjoy also ‘A Muppet Christmas Carol’ movie in the courtyard. You may want to pick up a calendar at the store, as Vroman’s has planned a series of fun holiday events that your family will certainly want to enjoy.
