2017 Teen Writing Contest: Submission Period Opens August 1!

This is the fifth year that we have put out the call for submissions, and we can’t wait to read this year’s entries!  It is an opportunity for local talent to shine.

The contest is open to all students in grades seven to twelve residing in the library service area or attending school in R.S.U. 1.   We will accept submissions until Friday, November 17.  First ($100) and second ($50) prizes will be awarded for short fiction and memoir in two age groups, grades seven to nine and grades ten to twelve.  Entries will be judged by a panel of library staff, trustees, local teachers, and teen library council members, and winners will be honored in a public ceremony in January.
