Summer Reading Club Colouring Contest


Grab your crayons and get ready to colour! 

By popular demand we're hosting another colouring contest for our younger readers! Toddlers to twelve year-olds can partcipate in this contest, no library card or registration required. Just send your completed pages to jcox@summer.com or drop them off at the library between 12:00 - 4:00 pm!

The contest runs between June 9 to 19. We will have a draw for multiple names. Our prizes are:

  • Grand Prize: Dragon's Den Gift Card, Okanagan Colouring Book & coloured markers/pencils, SRC buttons
  • Runner Up Prizes: Okanagan Colouring Book, coloured markers/pencils, SRC buttons



The fine print:

  • All entries MUST have the name of the artist and contact information (phone and/or email) for a parent or guardian.
  • All entries must be emailed to jcox@summer.com or dropped off in-person at the library
  • You may either scan your finished page or take a picture of your finished piece for digital entries
  • By submitting your entry you are giving Penticton Public Library permission to share it on social media (you may remain anonymous if you want - just let us know!) with the hashtag #pplteencolouring and tagging @pentictonartscouncil

This contest has been made possible by the generous support of the Penticton & District Community Arts Council and Visit Penticton. The colouring page used for this contest has been created by local artist Lindsay Peltz for the colouring page collection Dream Now. Visit Later. Find more information about this collection here.
