2016 Bookmark Contest Winners Revealed!


Inspired by... Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer
written by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by David Roberts
(ABRAMS Books for Young Readers)

Our 2016 Winners are here!

Iggy and Rosie would be so proud! Our inspiring creative heroes obviously spoke to many kids out there and sparked some incredible ideas -  the response was amazing. We are so thrilled to announce that in our eighth year of our bookmark contest, we received almost 300 entries from all over New Jersey - the most ever!  

It truly was a terribly difficult task to chose our winners. The designs were so creative, the gadgets so fantastic, the buildings so cool and the titles so whimsical (and funny!)... and the hard work and care that went into them so obvious. So, we picked 12 winners instead of our usual 8. We just could not help ourselves. 

We will be celebrating our winners with an awards ceremony on Saturday, May 14th at 4pm where local architect Petia Morozov and local engineer Mark Zuluaga will be reading our inspiration books and presenting awards. It will be a celebration of creativity!
