Officials from the Libraries in Clackamas County (LINCC) are thrilled to announce that Happy Valley resident Danica Glazier, 13, is the winner of the seventh annual Teen Summer Reading Artwork Contest.
Glazier's piece exemplified the theme of Read Beyond the Beaten Path!
In addition to winning a $100 cash gift card, Glazier’s original artwork will be featured in LINCC's Teen Summer Reading Program materials.
“Once again, we continue to be impressed by the fabulous art submitted by our talented Clackamas County teen artists,” said Karen Batridge, Teen Services Specialist at the Canby Public Library. “The selection process gets harder every year! Congratulations to our winner Danica from Happy Valley and our three honorable mentions, and a big thanks to everyone who participated this year. Keep up the amazing work!”
There were three honorable mentions selected: Abigail Hempell of Oregon City, Aasha Patel of Wilsonville, and Anwesha Chowdhury of West Linn. All will receive a $25 cash gift card.
This summer, LINCC will again offer its summer reading programs for children and teens at all 13 libraries located within the county (most also offer programs for adults). Just like last year, summer reading will look a little different than previous years’ due to COVID-19 related restrictions, so be sure to check your local library’s website for details.
