Teen Summer Writing Contest 2014

Girl writingFor the last four years, Barbara Bush Branch Library and LSC-Tomball Community Library have co-hosted a summer writing contest for teens that includes both poetry and short story sections. We've gotten some wonderful entries each year and have had close to 100 entries for the last several years.

Students in both Middle School and High School are welcome to submit Short Stories and/or Poetry. Three winners will be selected in each category and every participant will receive a Certificate of Participation.  Entry Form and Guidelines are available here.  

This year, Teen Summer Writing Contest winners will be announced by local YA Author Crystal Allen who’s first Middle Grade novel, How Lamar's Bad Prank Won a Bubba Sized Trophy, received praise from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Review and YA author Neal Shusterman. The reception is scheduled for 7:00-8:00pm on August 12, 2014 and will take place at LSC-Tomball Community Library in Tomball, TX.
