Coloring Contest: Beyond the Lighthouse, Over the Mountains

August 5 @ 9:00 am - 9:00 pm| Main Library (Traverse City)

Join us for a COLORING CONTEST at TADL’s Main Library from August 5 – August 31 to celebrate the new children’s book Beyond the Lighthouse, Over the Mountains by local author and illustrator Tony Steeno. Pick up your coloring page from the Youth Services desk in the Main Library. Your coloring page will include two different images from the book- so you choose which one to color and enter! Turn it in by Saturday, August 31st, at 5 p.m. to be included in the contest.

Mr. Steeno’s new book emphasizes the theme of community and working together. To celebrate this theme, the winning entry of each age group will receive $50 to donate to their favorite charity.

More information about the contest:

  • Coloring sheets will be provided displaying images directly from the book Beyond the Lighthouse, Over the Mountains.
  • One winning coloring sheet will be chosen from each of five age groups: 0-3, 4-6, 7-9, 10-12, and 13 and up. Winning entries and honorable mention will be announced at Tony’s September 7th author event at TADL’s Main Library.
  • Winning artists will receive $50 to donate to their favorite charity as well as a fine art print of their favorite image from the book.
  • Honorable mention will be awarded to at least 5 contestants at the judges’ discretion. Honorable mention receives a $10 gift certificate to a local bookstore.
  • Parents are strongly encouraged to participate alongside their children – make coloring a family activity!
  • Judging will be done by a panel of three, including the book’s author.
  • Winners will be selected subjectively based on creativity and aesthetics.

Here is the fine print:

  • Prizes have been provided by donation. The donor has stipulated that donations to political organizations or organizations whose primary mission is lobbying are not acceptable.
  • Selected charitable organizations will be ones supported by the contest winner, not necessarily the library, book or author.
  • Library funds have not been used to support this contest.
