Create a Character Pumpkin Contest

Decorate a pumpkin using paints, markers, yarn, paper, fabric, buttons-anything you like, and turn your pumpkin into your favorite book character.  

To enter the contest:

  1. Take 2 photos – one of the pumpkin by itself and another with you and your pumpkin.
  2. Grades k-8 send both photos to using your school email account.  
  3. In your email message be sure to include your name, grade, and the pumpkin character’s name. 
  4. Bring your pumpkin to the main lobby to be put on display, Thursday, October 27.

Winners will be selected from each grade level. All students in grades K-8 may vote for their favorite pumpkin at each grade level. All voting will take place on Monday, October 31 by 3:00pm. 

Our pumpkin friends, while fun to look at, will hopefully interest students in some good books. This activity is open to all students at Menands School.
