July 16, 2020
Cathlamet Public Library has announced a contest open to young writers and artists ages 5-15. Entries are due at Cathlamet Public Library by 5 p.m. on Friday, July 31.
Prizes will be awarded for best short story, poem, or artwork on the theme of Imagine Your Story, in the following categories: age 5-7, age 8-10, age 11-13, and age 14-15. Written work can be handwritten or typed; parents can scribe for their children in the youngest age group and for those having difficulty with motor skills. Artwork can be a drawing, painting or sculpture.
Ideas: An imaginary creature is your pet; you have a magical talent or power; or you are a clever, brave, friendly, and kind new folktale character helping someone.
Contest entries must include the creator’s name, age, and phone number, and a signed statement that the work is their original creation.
