Pumpkin Character Contest

Have fun as a family by participating in the first ever Roosevelt Pumpkin Character Contest!

Who: Any Roosevelt family can enter this optional contest. We will accept one pumpkin per family.

What: Use a small or medium sized FAKE pumpkin(s) to bring a children's book character to life. The pumpkins will be displayed with a printout of the book cover in the LRC the week before Halloween. (Don't worry. Mrs. Handlon will print the book covers.)

As students come to the LRC for lessons the week of Oct. 23rd, they will get the chance to vote for their favorites. The pumpkins with the most votes will be awarded prizes.

When: Pumpkins can be dropped off at Roosevelt between Tuesday, October 17th and Friday, October 21st. Voting will start Oct. 23rd. Winners will be announced on Oct. 31st.


Important Rules to Remember:

~ Fill out in registration form in order to participate.

~ Real pumpkins CANNOT be used! We don't want pumpkins rotting in the LRC.

~ Only one entry per family. PLEASE DO NOT put your name on a visible part of your pumpkin. This will help make voting more authentic.

~ The pumpkin must represent a children's book character. Think about your family's favorite picture book or chapter book.

~ You may use more than one pumpkin if needed, but keep in mind we have limited space in the LRC.


** If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Handlon at thandlon@d64.org. **
