Bookmark Contest for Students K-5th
Bike Walk Montana and AAA MountainWest are partnering together on a fun bookmark contest for grades K-5! Kicking off on Wednesday, October 5th, Walk to School Day, and extending through Friday, October 14th, students are encouraged to enter the contest by drawing/coloring a picture, or writing a poem or creative phrase that represents a safety tip for walking or biking to school. The tips are located on the contest guidelines.
Start date: October 5, 2016
Contest Ends (all entries due to teachers): October 14, 2016
Entries mailed to Bike Walk Montana: October 18, 2016 at the latest
Tentative selection of the winning entries: First week of November
Tentative distribution of the postmarks: First week of December
Our committee will select one winner from each of the grade levels statewide. We will then print and distribute bookmarks to each K-5 student in alignment with the winning grade level with the winner’s artwork on the front of the bookmark and walking safety tips on the back.
Download and display the poster to promote throughout your school and community. All entries must use the template with the picture completely within the frame in order for it to qualify, so as to fit on the bookmark. If your school is promoting the contest, entries should be submitted to the school. Otherwise, you may mail them directly to Bike Walk Montana at 910 Lyndale Ave. Helena, MT 59601
All drawings must be postmarked by October 18 or will not be considered.
