All teen artists called on to 'imagine your story'
Teens across Clackamas County are encouraged to enter 2020 with imaginations wide open. The Libraries in Clackamas County (LINCC) will open its annual Teen Summer Reading Artwork Contest on Jan. 2 with the theme "Imagine Your Story."
Submissions can be entered until Jan. 31. Artists must be between the ages of 12 and 18 or in sixth through 12th grades at time of entry. Entries should be in color and not include text.
"The LINCC Teen Art Contest is a favorite every year," said Rebecca Mayer, Teen and Tween Librarian at the West Linn Public Library. "Not only does it give us a chance to honor the artistic skills and talents of our Clackamas County teens and promote the summer reading program, but it's the perfect example of the many ways to tell a story."
Last year's theme was "Universe of Stories" and the winner was Leala Tran, 12, of Happy Valley.
The winning artwork will be featured on reading promotional materials for the LINCC throughout the county throughout the summer and the winner also receives a $100 gift card.
For more information or to enter, visit www.lincc.org or visit any of the 13 libraries in the county.
