Libraries Announce Third Annual Teen Art Contest


The Libraries in Clackamas County (LINCC) invites interested teens to submit original artwork for its third annual Teen Summer Reading Artwork contest. This year’s theme is “Libraries Rock.”

The contest begins on Jan. 2, and submissions are welcome until Feb. 11. Artists must be between the ages of 12 and 18 at the time of submission, and artwork must represent the theme. Entries should be in color with no text.

“We want to give local teen artists a platform to show off their work, dynamic energy and talents” said Rebecca Robinowitz, Library Assistant at the Sandy Public Library. “This is a wonderful opportunity for teens to participate and help promote our 2018 Summer Reading Program.”

The winner of last year’s contest, themed “Build a Better World,” was 14-year-old Lexie Ng of West Linn. Her winning entry is attached to this press release. 

Like last year, the winning design will be used by LINCC throughout the county for all summer reading promotional materials such as posters, forms, fliers and social media.

A $100 cash gift card will be awarded for first place, and honorable mentions may also be recognized.
