Rowan Public Library celebrates bookmark design winners

SALISBURY – Rowan Public Library celebrated the winners of its annual Bookmark Design Contest with a special reception. Submissions were to be original designs and reflect the theme of books, reading, libraries, and/or literacy.

Sponsored by Friends of Rowan Public Library, the contest received over 250 entries. Prizes were awarded to first-, second- and third-place in three age-based categories:

In the 4- to 6-years-old category, Margot May Pryor (Overton Elementary) earned first place; Kierstyn Rogers (North Hills) placed second; and Riley Finney (Bostian Elementary) placed third.

In the 7- to 9-years-old category, Trisha Roy (Salisbury Academy) earned first place; Sawyer Sherrill (Enochville Elementary) placed second; and Peyton Bell (Bostian Elementary) placed third.

In the 10- to 11-years-old category, Chloe Shank (Erwin Middle) earned first place; Mayla Brinkley (Sacred Heart) placed second; and Lizzie Brilliant (homeschool) placed third.

A limited run of the first-place designs were professionally printed by Salisbury’s Quick Copy Print Shop and are available at RPL branches. All winners received a cash prize, and their designs are on display at RPL Headquarters, located at 201 W. Fisher St. in Salisbury.
