The following is a press release from the Pierce County Library System:

Teen writers and artists are invited to show their talents in the Our Own Expressions Teen Writing and Art Contest, which continues through Feb. 28.

The contest is sponsored by the Pierce County Library System.

Teenagers in seventh through 12th grades, who live in or attend school in Pierce County, may enter the contest, individually or as a team. They may enter in one or all four categories: poetry, short story, photography and drawing. Participation in the contest is free.

Students may get entry forms at any Pierce County library or online. Entries may also be submitted by mail to Pierce County Library System, 3005 112th St. E., Tacoma, 98446-2215.

Judges will review writing entries on the basis of originality, style, general presentation, grammar, spelling and evidence of skill appropriate for the writer’s age. They will review art entries on the basis of composition, evidence of skill commensurate with the age of the artist, creativity and effective use of media. Published authors, professional artists and photographers select the final winning pieces.

The Pierce County Library Foundation will award cash prizes of $50 to $100 in three age groups: seventh and eighth grade, ninth and 10th grade, and 11th and 12th grade; and in the four categories.

Last year, teenagers submitted more than 1,100 entries in the Our Own Expressions contest.
