We all have stories about animals—pets or otherwise—and we want to hear yours! Your Library is holding two creative contests as part of the Summer Reading Challenge for you to share your animal stories in creative ways. We are accepting submissions for both an art and short story writing competition until Wednesday, June 30.
The winners of each contest will be announced on Friday, July 16 and prizes will be awarded.
Our art competition is divided into three age divisions: kids (5-11 years), teens (12-18), and adults (19+). The work should be animal-themed and no larger than 11 x 17 inches. You can submit one piece of artwork per person.
Short Story Contest
Our writing competition is divided into two age divisions: teens (12-18 years) and adults (19+). Your short story can be fiction or nonfiction. It should be animal-themed and less than 1,000 words. You can submit one written piece per person.
