At the conclusion of the Teen Photo Contest, we prepare for the launch of our next competition, DBRLTeen’s Flash Fiction Contest. In keeping with this year’s Teen Read Week theme, we are asking teens to submit their original spooky short stories. All entries must be 250 words or less and incorporate the phrase, “It came from the library.” Winning entries and honorable mentions will be published on the library’s teen blog and winners will receive a Barnes & Noble gift card. Find contest rules and submission guidelines after Monday, September 10 at teens.dbrl.org.
And now, we are pleased to announced the winner among those contestants ages 15-18: Laury Lopez for his photo “Live Night.” Laury says, “I really enjoy photography and usually carry my camera with me everywhere I go. Sometimes I just sit outside and look around waiting for a good opportunity. I really enjoy looking at the stars and so I decided to stay outside late one night and just take pictures of the stars.” Laury will receive a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble as his award.
Congratulations to all our winners and many thanks to our talented teen patrons for their participation! To receive email reminders about our upcoming Flash Fiction Contest, be sure to register for our blog updates!
