IADT-Detroit Highlights National Library Week with Design Contest

April 25, 2012 IADT Detroit, IADT General 0 Comments

As part of the recent National Library Week, The Learning Resource Center at IADT-Detroit recently sponsored a Recycled & Reinvented Book Contest for students, faculty, and staff. Entrants submitted creative designs made of recycled print materials including books, newspapers, and magazines.

Numerous entries were received, and prizes were awarded to the three highest vote-getters: Cat Willis and her dragon sculpture won first prize, Tabitha Brookins’ “Link” from the game “The Legend of Zelda” won second prize, and Nich Donnelly’s “Rupert the Reading Robot” won third prize (see images of all below). 

First prize was an iPod Shuffle and Bananagrams game, second prize was a pair of Skullcandy headphones, and third prize was an 8GB flash drive and Apples to Apples game. 

In addition to the contest, a National Library Week “tree” was set up for students, faculty, and staff so that they could write their favorite book, movie or quote on a paper leaf or paper orange and hang it from the tree. 

Origami also was hidden throughout the library, and students, faculty, and staff who found the designated origami for the day were rewarded with a small treat. 

All in all, National Library Week was a success, and we thank everyone for their contributions and efforts!
