The WPL’s 18th Annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest

The WPL’s 18th Annual Pumpkin Decorating contest is going virtual!

We are doing things a little differently this year. As no actual pumpkins will be making their way into the library, you are free to be as creative and liberal with a carving knife as you want—on the pumpkin that is!  Paint, glue, or carve–No theme, no restrictions—we only ask that you keep your pumpkins family friendly!

We will have four age categories:
Pre-School (Ages 3-7)
Kids (Ages 8-12)
Teens (Ages 13-17)
Adult (18+)

A cash prize of $75 will be awarded to the Most Creative in each age group (to be decided on by a panel of judges) and we will have a Most Liked winner selected from the most liked photo on our Facebook page who will win $150!  Be sure to visit and check out our Facebook Pumpkin Photo Album to vote on your favorite.


Please read the rules carefully. We would hate for you to be unable to participate!

All participants will be required to email a photo of their pumpkin to
Only one pumpkin per person–but families can send in all of their submissions in one email.

Your email must include:

  • Attachment of your photo
  • Name of participant
  • Name of pumpkin
  • Age Category (Pre-K/Kids/Teen/Adult)
  • Phone number
  • and Name of parent/guardian of participants under the age of 18.

Once we have received your submission, your photo will be added to our Facebook Page Pumpkin Photo Album! Keep a look out to share and tag your friends.

DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 30th at NOON. Winners announced Monday, November 2nd.
