It's Teen Read Week!

 

Have you heard? October 14-20 is Teen Read Week!

 

Teen Read Week started in 1998 as an effort to encourage teens to read for the fun of it…which is something we do every day here at SCPL Teens. We crank it up a few notches for Teen Read Week, though, by running contests throughout the whole month of October.

 

Have you entered any of our contests yet? There are three to choose from, and you can enter all of them! (Some of them involve fine print, so read closely.) Entry forms for all contests can be picked up at any SCPL location.

 

Candy Counting Contest: We’ve placed jars stuffed with candy at each of our 10 branches! Correctly guess how many pieces of candy are in the jar at your branch (or come the closest), and you could win ALL THE CANDY!

 

Design a Bookmark Contest: Create a bookmark using the Teen Read Week theme—“It Came from the Library”—and you could win a $100 gift card to Barnes and Noble! The winning design will be professionally printed and distributed at all SCPL locations.

 

-       To be eligible to win, participating teens, or someone living at the teen’s permanent residence, must be a full-privilege Spartanburg County Public Library cardholder.

-       Design can be full color and must be 1.5” x 7” and include the 2012 Teen Read Week theme. Digital entries must be 300 dpi and saved as a .jpg, .pdf, .tiff, or .eps.

-       Entries need to be accompanied by the artist’s name, address, phone #, age and grade in school, and can be turned in to any Spartanburg County Public Library location or emailed to teens@infodepot.org.

-       Entries will be judged based on originality, use of theme, and design. The contest ends October 31st, and the winner will be announced in November.

 

It Came from the Library Photo Contest: Take a picture of yourself posing with a book that “came from the library.” The winning teen will receive a $25 Amazon gift card.

 

-       To be eligible to win, participating teens, or someone living at the teen’s permanent residence, must be a full-privilege Spartanburg County Public Library cardholder.
