Contests for Kids & Teens
The library has three contests this month to encourage kids and teens to show off their creativity. Create a bookmark for Summer Reading program, design new art for the teen blog or write some poetry for National Poetry Month.
Design a Bookmark Contest
Help us promote the library’s upcoming Summer Reading program for kids and teens by designing an original bookmark. The teen theme this year is ”Make Waves“ and the kids’ theme is ”Make a Splash—Read!“ The top three winners in each age bracket (13-18 or under 13) from each library will get their bookmarks printed and distributed late spring and summer. Art can be any kind of 2-D medium: markers, paint, photo, digital, whatever you come up with to put on paper. Entries due by March 31.
Teen Blog Art Contest
It’s time for spring cleaning, and we want to spruce up the library’s teen blog with some original artwork. All teens are encouraged to submit original artwork which will be used to replace our existing blog header. Chosen submissions will be showcased on DBRLTeen (teens.dbrl.org) throughout late spring and summer. Entries due by March 31.
Callaway Youth Poetry Contest
April is National Poetry Month, a great time to try writing a verse or two. This contest for Callaway County kids and teens will award winners in three age groups: 5-8, 9-12 and 13-18. Winning poems will be displayed at the library in Fulton, at Central Bank and online. Cosponsored by the Callaway Arts Council and the Auxvasse Creative Arts Program. An awards ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. on April 29 at the library. Entries due by April 5.
