County libraries call on teen artists
The Libraries in Clackamas County are again asking teens to get out their markers, paint and other mediums.
LINCC is now accepting submissions for its fourth annual Teen Summer Reading Artwork contest, according to a press release. This year's theme is "Universe of Stories."
Last year's winner was 13-year-old Afton Fastabend of West Linn.
Of course, any teen in Clackamas County is eligible to snag this year's win, which comes with a $100 cash gift card. Honorable mentions may be recognized too.
The winning design will be used by LINCC throughout the county for all summer 2019 reading promotional materials such as posters, forms, flyers and social media.
Perhaps a young Canby artist could have their work recognized through the county library's contest.
"We enjoy providing the opportunity to showcase their work countywide," said Sabrina Tusing, Youth Services Library Assistant III at the Oregon City Public Library. "Our summer reading art contest is a great way to get teens involved in their local library while promoting summer reading each year."
Artists must be between the ages of 12 and 18, or in 6th to 12th grades, when the art is submitted. Artwork should be in color with no text and should represent the theme.
The entry form is available here and should be submitted along with the artwork by Jan. 31 to any LINCC member library, including Canby Public Library.
