This bookmark design contest, held by the H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Cultural and Art Museum in tandem with the Library of the City of Covina, CA (City of Covina Parks and Recreation Library Services Division), is held for the students who are currently in school. Over 200 pieces of art are collected from 37 cities in the LA and Orange Counties and they show the enthusiasm of the community.
The theme of this bookmark contest is “Reading takes you everywhere”. That is, through reading, students’ creativities can be inspired, their talents can blossom, and their future can develop into boundless possibilities. The 2018 City of Covina Bookmark Contest hopes to not only enhance children's interest in reading, but also broaden their horizons on world’s cultures and history, raise their moral characters and become great citizens who can make contributions to their families, the societies and the country.
