Time to sharpen those colored pencils

Feeling artistic?

The contest for the 2015 Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS) Teen Summer Reading Program is coming up, so it’s time to get to the drawing board.

The artwork must represent the 2015 Teen Summer Reading theme, “Unmask!” Artists are encouraged to submit artwork only, not the word “Unmask,” as graphic designers will add the theme to the winning artwork.

All entries should be in color. Designs must be the original work of the entrant. Computer-generated images may be used, but all components must be original.

There is a limit of two entries per person. Entrants must be between the ages of 12 and 18.

Submissions will be accepted between Jan. 2 and Feb. 14, 2015, and must be submitted as a hard copy at one of the WCCLS member libraries. Submissions will be judged by a panel of librarians, community members and Teen Library Council members.

Prizes will be awarded to first and second place winners as well as an honorable mention winner. First prize is a $150 gift card to Powell’s Books. The winner’s artwork will be used on promotional materials for the summer reading program, such as posters, bookmarks, forms and on the WCCLS website.

For information on rules and for submission forms, visit wccls.org or call youth librarian Rick Samuelson at 503-681-5092.
