Promote the protection and stewardship of Lake George by encouraging students to participate in the 2018 Lake George Bookmark Design Contest!
The Lake George Association is looking for original artwork for the tenth annual Lake George
Bookmark Design Contest. Entries are now being accepted from students in grades 4-7 attending schools located within the Lake George watershed: Whitehall, Lake George, Bolton, Ticonderoga, Queensbury, Fort Ann, Putnam, Warrensburg, and Hadley-Luzerne.
The 2018 bookmark theme is “Clean Streams, Happy Lake.” Last year’s winning bookmark is pictured at right.
Stormwater run-off is one of the biggest threats to Lake George water quality. Rainwater running off parking lots, roads, roofs, and cars can carry harmful pollutants to our streams and Lake. Therefore, we would like to encourage students to focus on Lake and watershed stormwater pollution prevention. Ideas that fit the theme include keeping storm drains free of debris, planting along the shoreline/preventing erosion, “No dumping in the Lake,” rain barrels, rain gardens, no littering, etc.
- Finished bookmark size is 3” x 8”. A template is provided on the entry form.
- Designs must be in color (crayon, colored pencil, marker, or watercolor) on unlined white paper.
- The winning design will be printed on a bookmark along with the student’s name and school and distributed to schools, libraries, and other locations throughout the Lake George watershed.
Deadline is April 25, 2018
Entry forms can be found online here.
Drop off entries at the Lake George Association office on Route 9N or mail to: Lake George
Association, P.O. Box 408, Lake George, NY 12845
