In June, the library invited area youth to submit a work of visual art as part of our annual Summer Reading program. We received many entries that included photos, paintings, drawings and collages. After much consideration by a jury of staff artists, we are happy to announce our contest winners:
First Place: “Forest Fox” by Zlata Kolenikova
Second Place: “Build a Better World” by Joya Hagemeyer
Third Place: “Brave Enough” by Elijah Gersky
As we reach the end of one contest, we look forward to the next. Now through October 14, submit your entry into the library’s Six-Word Memoir Contest. We are asking teens to tell us about themselves in just six words. No more. No less. Winners will be announced on our website in November.
