Kids are invited to participate in the “Your Summer Colors” drawing contest!  All children 11 years and under can participate. There may be no help from adults with any part of the drawing.

The theme of the contest is “Your Summer Colors”. Think about what summer fun means to you, how you enjoy it, and what makes it colorful and special to you.

Entrants will be separated into age categories as follows:

  • 5 and under
  • 6-8 years old
  • 9-11 years old 

All entries should be delivered to the Children’s Desk at the Fond du Lac Public Library.  All kids will receive a small prize when their drawing is delivered!

Artwork must be two-dimensional, on a letter size (8.5” x 11”) white piece of paper. Entries should not contain any plant or animal materials as a medium (no grasses, seeds, fur, feathers, etc.). You can use colored pencils, crayons, markers, watercolors, etc. but the size of the paper remains letter size. You may use regular paper or cardstock. 

Entries should be the original art. We will not accept photocopies or e-mailed entries.

How do I label my entry?
