The Academy at Nola Dunn Library

It’s Fall and time for our 8th annual Pumpkin/Gourd Book Character Contest. Each entry must dress/decorate a pumpkin or gourd as their favorite book character and create a poem about their character to go with it. Pumpkins and gourds must be in good condition with no cuts (or better yet…use a faux pumpkin). Each entry name will be put in a drawing for prizes. Two winners will be drawn for each grade level. All entries must be in the library with the information below (name, teacher, grade and poem), between October 30 & 31 (no earlier than that please due to pumpkin leakage and deterioration). Winners will be announced on Friday, November 3rd. All entries must be removed by Friday, November 3rd .

Thank you. Mrs. Patterson
