Eager Reader Design A Bookmark Contest!








Eager Reader

Design a Bookmark Contest!

We are excited to announce that Eager Reader — a Discovery favorite — is just a few weeks away! This popular reading program motivates daily reading habits and lets students earn NEW books that they select themselves…all for FREE!

And of course these new books will need a bookmark, so every student participating will receive a FREE bookmark! And as a fun treat, this year’s bookmark will be designed by a Discovery student!

All Discovery students are encouraged to design a bookmark! If your student would like to submit a design for a chance to be our featured bookmark artist, please follow the steps below:

1. Print a blank bookmark template here, or create your own, ensuring that the bookmark dimensions are 2 inches wide by 7.25 inches tall. 

2. Only ONE submission per student; designs need to be ORIGINAL ARTWORK (no copyrighted material) and MUST be designed and created by the student. 

3. Bookmark designs can be in color or black and white; keep in mind that designs will need clear handwriting (not too small!) if desired, and designs shouldn’t be overly intricate as they may not reproduce properly.  

4. Digital art designs are acceptable as long as they are created by the student. 

5. Your student’s full name and grade need to be included with the bookmark design but NOT written within the 2x7.25 bookmark design area. 

6. Designs will be due no later than the end of the school day on Thursday, December 8th. Late submissions will not be accepted. 

7. Designs will need to be submitted in physical form (no email submissions allowed) on any type of paper that is able to be copied and/or scanned. Turn in your completed bookmark in the designated basket at the Discovery Library.

Start designing today! Discovery staff will vote and select one winner to have their bookmark be a part of our 2023 Eager Reader program!

Help a local child in need enjoy the holidays!

UPDATE! The Issaquah Food Bank relayed they have met their need for the Holiday Gift Barn. But, please consider a donation to the Food Bank to help families in need of food this winter and holiday season.

Donate to the Food Bank here:

Did you know there are students in Issaquah Schools who are in need this holiday season?

Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank provides donations to 1,300 children so their families can have a great holiday season too. See their goal and progress here.

Another option is to donate directly online to the Holiday Gift Barn. This is an effective option if you participate in employee matching or need a receipt. Note in their comment section 'Holiday Gift Barn.'
