- Themed Apron: an apron that expresses a theme, like a holiday or flowers.
- Craziest Apron: Original and wacky-- that's what we are looking for here.
- My Story Apron: Submit a story or memory surrounding your apron, like baking cookies with Grandma.
To enter the contest, claim your Chow Down badge by uploading a photo of yourself wearing your apron (or just a photo of your apron if you are camera shy) and write the category in the comments. Or come in to the library on July 31 between 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM, fill out an entry form and get your picture taken. Photos will be posted online for public voting. May the best apron win!
