SHEPHERD — Shepherd ISD started a bookmark contest at the Shepherd Middle School library six years ago, which has blossomed into the competition it is now.
Students love using bookmarks, and grew to love the contest just as much; they enjoy seeing a bookmark that they or someone they know created being handed out through our own library.
Every student has the opportunity to participate. We ask them to follow simple rules: Make your bookmark about reading or books, make them colorful, If you use a quote give the author credit but have fun creating them.
This year we invited everyone from the Administration building, the MS administration, the Technology Department and the Special Education Department to judge our bookmarks.
Each of the first-place winners will get 25 copies of their bookmarks to share with their families and friends plus a gift certificate to spend at our book fair.
The rest of the bookmarks we put out for students in our library.
