Avon Free Public Library “Art on a Card” Contest

Calling all artists! Avon Free Public Library is holding an art contest to design new library cards. Four winners will be selected, one for each from the following groups:

  • elementary school
  • middle school
  • high school
  • adults (age 18 and older)

Each winner will receive a prize of a $50 gift card and runners up will receive $25 gift cards.  Winning artwork (to be announced on the Library website on about March 1) will be used on new library cards, and Library patrons will then have a choice of any winner for their library card.  Download a template of our library card to get started with your design.

Winners will be chosen by a Library committee. Judges will know only the category of the submitter and no other information. Library employees and their family members may not enter the contest.
