Enid Public Library to Announce “Youth Design A Library Card Contest”


The Enid Public Library announced the “Youth Design a Library Card Contest” to create a new library card design.

The contest will last through April 9 and will allow 12th grade students and below to enter.

The initiative’s focus is to allow the youth to leave a lasting mark on the Enid community by engaging creative minds amongst Garfield County’s youth, and allow for a new creative approach to artistic expression.

The Director of Enid Public Library, Theri Ray, released a statement about the new initiative.

“I am extremely excited to see what the youth of our area come up with for library cards,” Ray said. “We are reintroducing different card type options for young library users, and I cannot think of a more exciting way to do that than to have area youth design the card faces.”

Entries will be judged based on creativity, originality, and how well the design captures the Create, Learn, Grow theme of the library.

There will be two categories:

  • 5th Grade or younger
  • Middle or High School category

The contest is now open for submissions; submission guidelines are now viewable on the Enid Public Library’s website and at the circulation desk.
