Great Pumpkin Extravaganza

The Rooney Ranch Library is getting into the fall spirit! We invite you to join in on our favorite book characters pumpkin/gourd decorating contest. 

Entries may be dropped off at the library all day on Wednesday, October 19 or Thursday, October 20. They can also be dropped off on Monday, October 24, no later than 8:30am. 

Contest Rules

  • You may use pumpkins or gourds to create your project. Fake pumpkins/gourds are also possible options. 
  • Absolutely NO CARVED entries. Pumpkins/gourds that have carved or punctured skin will be disqualified and sent home that day. 
  • Pumpkins should be no larger than 36 inches in circumference. 
  • To decorate, you can use paper, glue, paint, or any other craft items on the pumpkin. Be creative! Also– this must be student work– parents may certainly help but supervision is best so that this is authentic student work 
  • Projects must represent a character from a book (no TV characters!) appropriate for elementary school students. 
  • Students choosing to participate must provide their own pumpkin and decorating materials. 
  • An entry form must be turned in with the pumpkin (see below). 
Pumpkins will be displayed in the library from October 24 – 28. All pumpkins must be taken home on Monday, October 31.
