Teens, how would you like to win $3,000 for your favorite Wake County Library and $50 for yourself! The American Library Association is sponsoring a video contest for ages 13-18. Entries are due by April 18. This contest has no affiliation with Wake County. Details can be found on the website.
The 2010 Poetry Contest is going to be accepting entries starting February 1 through March 14th, 2010. Students in grades 6-12 are invited to submit one original poem (as a Microsoft Word document) on a theme of their choice to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please make sure you include your name, phone number, name of school, and grade. All entries must be received by 5 pm on March 14th. Winners will be notified in early April. Selected poems will be included in a chapbook published by Wake County Public Libraries.
Winning poets will be invited to read their poems on Sunday, April 25th, 2010, 2 pm at Cameron Village Library.
