The Pierce County Library System encourages teenagers to show their talents in the annual Our Own Expressions Teen Writing & Art Contest. If you’re in grades 7-12, enter your poem, short story, photo, or artwork by Feb. 28, 2019, and you could win up to $100 from the Pierce County Library Foundation.
Local writers and artists help select winning entries, and the Library System, with a donation from the Library Foundation, will award prizes in four categories: poetry, short story, photography, and drawing. Each category has three age groups: grades 7 and 8, grades 9 and 10, and grades 11 and 12. Thank you to Pierce County Library Foundation that sponsors the contest.
Contest winners will feature their work in an awards ceremony on May 29, 2019, and the Library System will publish the award-winning entries.
The contest is free and submissions must be entered between now and Feb. 28, 2019. Learn more at expressions.pcls.us.
