Announcing Our Logo Contest! 

This year marks the 40th anniversary of our award!  To mark this milestone, we have decided it is time to update our logo.

We are looking for input and inspiration from K-12 students.  
The final design should appeal to the audience of K-3rd grade students and reflect Washington state.

 Please encourage students to participate: 

  • Print out the logo design form and go over directions with students.
  • Completed designs should be handed to the school teacher-librarian.
  • No more than two entries per school, so teacher-librarians will select or organize the selection of the entries from their school.
Entries should be mailed to:

Charisse Tsukamoto
Hazelwood Elementary
7100 116th Avenue SE
Newcastle, WA 98056

Entries are to be received by February 14th, 2022

If you have questions, please contact Charisse Tsukamoto
