Now through Saturday, April 9 The Friends of the Library of Windham need young artists to help create the official logo for the 2011 Strawberry Festival and Book Fair! Help your budding artist enter this year’s Strawberry Festival and Book Fair Design Contest and see their masterpiece used on all of the posters and advertisements for the festival. Windham’s largest annual town festival offers a day of fun for children and their families, and what better way to promote the Festival than through the drawings of young children! Help your child (ages 12 and under) to enter the contest using the following guidelines: Submit artwork on an 8 1/2” by 11” piece of blank white paper; markers, crayons, paint, or even computer software may be used, but please do not use pencils; keep in mind that strawberries, books, and community are the themes of the Strawberry Festival and Book Fair. Submissions should be turned in by Saturday, April 9, to the front desk of the Nesmith Library. Include your child’s name, age, and phone number on the back of their design. All of the masterpieces will be displayed at the Festival, which will be held at Windham High School on Saturday, June 4. The winner will be recognized at the Festival and will receive game tickets and other prizes. If you need additional information, contact Stephanie Wimmer at 421-9161.
