This year, in conjunction with Wilton Library’s 125th anniversary, the contest celebrates the past, present and future of Wilton.

Winners will be judged in three categories–Most Whimsical, Best Historical Wilton Place, and Most Visionary Design of a Wilton Place.
From Dec. 3-Dec. 16, visitors to the library also can vote for their favorite models. Winners will be announced Dec. 18 at 4 p.m..
Winning submissions, including the Community Favorite, will be awarded Wilton Chamber gift certificates courtesy of Fairfield County Bank. Entries will remain on display through Dec. 22. See the library’s website for full details, including measurements, guidelines, entry forms and helpful links.
