Subject: My Book Cover — Draw or paint the cover of a book you would write. It can be a novel with characters you create or the story of your life, made up of real events. It could also be an existing book with you and your friends replacing the main characters. It’s up to you, and the sky is the limit.

Three age categories: 1 to 9, 10 to 14 and 15 to 18 years old. Each group will have first-, second- and third-place winners.
