3. The book title and author’s name must be on the front of the bookmark.
4. The bookmark can be created by either hand drawing or a digital program. However, all artwork must be student’s own work. Images cannot be taken from copyrighted or trademarked material (ie: Clemson Tiger, Carolina Gamecock, Pokemon, etc.) Students may also not use the images or artwork from the book’s cover. The Bookmark Contest is NOT COVERED UNDER FAIR USE GUIDELINES, therefore any images/artwork must be cited, included the student’s own, and permissions from non-student’s work must be provided.
5. The final submission of the bookmark must be printed and mailed with the Bookmark Submission Form.
6. Media Specialist/teacher must affirm in the Bookmark Submission Form (1) that permission has been granted by the parents or guardians to use the student’s name in judging and publicizing the entry, and (2) that permission has been granted by the parents or guardians for use of the entry in SCASL publications, promotions, and products. The media specialist/teacher must keep this documentation on file.
7. A school may have multiple entries, however, only one entry per student is permitted. The bookmark submission form must be completed for each individual entry.
8. In order to identify the bookmark and assist the judges, please submit the Bookmark Submission Form with your bookmark entry. 

PLEASE NOTE: Failure to follow these guidelines IN FULL will disqualify the student’s entry.

Bookmark Judging 

Please review the Book Award Bookmark Judging Rubric for specific details judges will be looking for when reviewing the bookmarks. Each bookmark will be judged on the authenticity of the art as it relates to the book as well as on the artistic quality of the bookmark. All artwork must be the original work of the student.. The bookmark must be a student project. Adult input should be advisory in nature and kept to the minimum required by the age group participating.

Certificates of participation will be available on-line to each participating school at www.scasl.net. In addition, a ribbon for first, second and third place in each category will be awarded at conference and a prize of $50.00 will be awarded to the first place winner in each category. The award checks will be sent to the school media specialist unless otherwise requested.

A school may win only one first place award but may receive other award levels. Schools may submit as many bookmarks as they would like, however, only one entry per student is permitted. One student may not co-create nor individually create more than one entry. The Bookmark Submission Form must be completed for each individual entry.
