Teens in grades 7-12 are invited to participate in Pierce County Library System’s “Our Own Expressions” teen writing and art contest through Feb. 23.
Students that live in or attend school in Pierce County can enter the contest, individually or as a team, in one or all four categories: poetry, short story, photography and drawing. Participation is free.
Entry forms are available at any Pierce County Library or online at piercecountylibrary.org. (Click the blue “search site” button and enter OOE.)
Entries will be judged on originality, style, general presentation, grammar, spelling, and evidence of skill appropriate for the writer’s age. Art entries will be reviewed for composition, evidence of skill based on the artist’s age, creativity and effective use of media.
The Pierce County Library Foundation will award cash prizes in three age groups: grades 7-8, grades 9-10 and grades 11-12 in the four categories.
