Redesign a Book Cover Contest for Teens!

Redesign a Book Cover Contest for Teens! October 18 - 24

Entries accepted October 18 - 24

You know the ones, those books with covers that look so great, then you read them and think . . . what?! Or the book all your friends are raving about, then you see the cover and think . . . meh.

Here's your chance to set thinigs straight. Pick a favorite book (or even one you hate) and create a cover that really represents the book inside.

Submit your entry to the Information Desk during Teen Read Week, October 18 - 24. We'll judge the week after and award the winner a prize of art materials plus a surprise gift card.

Contest Rules
  1. Open to anyone in 6th - 12th grades
  2. The book has to be a Young Adult book (if you're not sure your choice is YA, ask Cressant)
  3. Submit your art with your name, grade, and a phone number on the back
  4. One submission per person
  5. Art in any form is allowed (consider drawing, painting, collage, digital . . .). But keep it book-cover-sized. No 6-foot  murals, please. If you have digital art, email it to Cressant or drop off on a CD or flash drive at the Information Desk. Make sure it's in a jpg or other format we can open!
  6. Judging will be based on overall creativity and how well the cover expresses the book it represents. 
  7. All art will be displayed in the Teen area for two weeks after the contest; it will then be available to pick up at the Information Desk.
