Program Description

Event Details

Turn a pumpkin into a hero or a villain from a book you've loved! We'll display your creation at the library and the public will vote on their favorites in four categories: Preschool Ages 5 -  10, Ages 11 - 17, and Adult.

Rules

Bring your pumpkin to the Farragut Branch Library on Saturday, October 22 (between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.) and fill out an entry form.  (You may bring in your pumpkin after this date if you can't possibly make it, but it won't receive as many votes.)

Each contestant may enter only one pumpkin. (Groups may collaborate on a pumpkin if they'd like, but each group may enter only one pumpkin.)

Pumpkins should be inspired by a story (book, movie, show, video game, etc.). Use your imagination!

No carved pumpkins will be accepted.

Pumpkins may be painted, stickered, dressed, etc. but please do not puncture them. All decorations must be appropriate for all ages.  If a pumpkin begins to deteriorate before the end of the contest or display period, library staff may discard it at their discretion.

Voting

The public will vote on their favorites through Monday, October 31. Winners will be announced and contacted on Tuesday, November 1.

Pumpkins must be retrieved by Saturday, November 5. Any pumpkins remaining after that date will be discarded.
