The com­pe­ti­tion, launched across the City of Rock­ing­ham’s four li­braries, en­cour­aged school stu­dents to de­sign and cre­ate book­marks to show­case the artis­tic cre­ativ­ity of young lo­cal peo­ple and the City’s ex­ten­sive li­brary ser­vices.

The win­ners are Jor­don Cock­rell, Madi­son Cock­rell, Gabriel Nsair and Molly Bemet.

All four will be pre­sented with their awards at a spe­cial func­tion at the Mary Davies Li­brary and Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Fri­day, Jan­uary 19, at 2pm.

The win­ning de­signs will be re­pro­duced and made avail­able for use by young read­ers.

City of Rock­ing­ham Mayor Barry Sam­mels said the com­pe­ti­tion, which at­tracted 160 en­tries, was an ef­fec­tive way to en­cour­age young peo­ple to show their cre­ativ­ity and at the same time al­low their de­signs to de­pict the best things about the life­style of the Rock­ing­ham com­mu­nity.

“It also showed once again the depth of the artis­tic tal­ent of our young peo­ple,” Cr Sam­mels said.
