Media and Interested Parties

The Libraries in Clackamas County (LINCC) are inviting interested teens to submit original artwork for a Teen Summer Reading Artwork contest with the theme of "Wellness, Fitness and Sports."

The contest began Jan. 2 and submissions are welcome until Feb. 13. Artists must be between 12-18 years old at the time of submission and create artwork representing the theme. Entries should be in color with no text.

"We're thrilled to offer a teen in Clackamas County the opportunity to have their artwork showcased during our Summer Reading Program in 2016," said Anna Bruce, Librarian at the Happy Valley Public Library. "I know we have many talented artists out in our communities and we look forward to seeing their creativity and designs related to our theme."

A prize will be awarded for first place. Honorable mentions may also be recognized. The winning design will be used by LINCC throughout the county for all summer reading program materials such as posters, forms and flyers.
