The Friends of the Library annual summer children’s writing contest is drawing to a close, with a deadline for entries of Sept. 5. Each year, local children and teens in grades one through 12 are invited to submit creative writing pieces with an open-ended theme.
This summer, in addition to writing, there is a second element of the contest: book design.
For the writing contest, winners in five age categories will receive gift certificates to Diesel, A Bookstore, with first place taking home $100, second $50 and third $25. For book design, prizes will be awarded in three categories: bookmark, a book cover or jacket, or pop-up pages.
