Each year, on March 31st we celebrate National Crayon Day. It’s the perfect day to pick up your favorite colors and celebrate these simple wax sticks. This year we had the pleasure of holding our first National Crayon Day StickTogether Contest! For our contest, we asked students to create original crayon drawings on 8.5" x 11" pieces of paper. The prize for the winning crayon drawings was to have their drawing turned into a Virtual Stickerboard that would be showcased in our Virtual Stickerboard Gallery for a week.
The response we received from our contest was incredible! We had crayon drawings pouring in from students all over the world. Our goal for this contest was to highlight the creativity of kids, and what they can create with crayons. To say we achieved our goal would be an understatement.
With hundreds of entries, we ended up selecting not 1, but 10 winners for our contest! We chose one winner from each grade level, kindergarten through 8th grade, and one GRAND PRIZE winner. We turned all the winning images into a Virtual Stickerboard. For the Grand Prize winner, we also produced a physical Sticker Mosaic Puzzle Poster Kit.
Find our winning images below along with what their images look like as a Virtual Stickerboard.
Our Grand Prize Winner was Nicholas, a 3rd grader from Stonybrook Elementary School in Kinnelon, New Jersey. His amazing library media specialist, Nancy Bosch, submitted his image. We also turned Nicholas’s image into a physical StickTogether Kit that he worked on both at home, and then at school with his fellow students. He is looking forward to taking it back home after the school year!
