Your entry must be a pumpkin or gourd, but the rest of your decorations (paint, glue, fabric, etc.) are up to your imagination!

No carved pumpkins. They rot, attract bugs, and smell—not a good image for our library! Pumpkins that have been carved, poked, or hollowed out will not be accepted. Submission drop-off begins October 1. All submissions must be in by October 18 at 4:30pm.

All submissions will be on display from October 21 to October 31 for public viewing and voting. Winners will receive gift certificates that will be decided by public choice. Four categories for prizes: 0-Pre-K; K-5; 6-12, Adult, plus an additional grand prize winner. For Wilson Public Library cardholders only, please.


  • Starting Tuesday, October 1st, 2019, repeats every day until Friday, October 18, 2019 @ 10:00 am
