The month of December brings two exciting Berlin Peck Memorial Library contests to Berlin residents. The first is a Logo Design Contest to help the library develop a new brand to put online, in print, on publications and in displays. Entrants must be Berlin residents in high school or older.
The winning entry will receive $250 awarded by the Friends of the Library and be credited with the winning logo design. Specific guidelines and an entry form are available on the library's website at www.berlinpeck.lib.ct.us. The deadline for entering is Friday, December 14, 2012 at 5 p.m.
The other contest running next month will be the Third Annual Gingerbread House Contest. This year we have added a new "Advanced" (all ages) category in addition to "Family" (all ages) and "Individual" (age 13+). We have also added a special Viewer's Choice Award so that all patrons can vote for their overall favorite. This popular event culminates each year with a special performance by the Berlin High School Madrigals, which occurs this year on Tuesday, December 18 at 7 p.m.
Here are dates to note:
- December 14-15 - Drop off houses at library
- December 17 - Judging of houses
- December 17-21 - Houses remain on display for Viewer's Choice voting
- December 18 - Judged winners are announced followed by the BHS Madrigals
- December 22 - Viewer's Choice winner announced
- December 22 and 24 - Houses may be picked up
More information and guidelines may be found on our website or on a special flyer available at all service desks.
