#Express Yourself, Win Prizes
Feeling creative? Want to make an impact? Help us promote a discussion about censorship, book bans and the freedom to read that centers teen voices just like yours! All you have to do is draw, paint, collage or otherwise create a square piece of artwork inspired by the American Library Association’s 2023 theme – Let Freedom Read – and join us at a Teen Advisory Board meeting from September 25 through October 6 for a chance to win prizes and showcase your talent!
#Rules and Instructions:
You can use whatever materials you like. However, the finished artwork must fit on a square canvas (of at least 1080x1080 pixels). You'll submit that, along with your name, age, email address (or phone number), the title of the artwork, and a short statement about what (or who) inspired you.
#Important Dates and Details:
- Join us at Teen Advisory Board from September 25–October 6.
- Vote for your favorite on Instagram October 10–15.
#Prizes Up for Grabs:
- The top winner gets a $25 Chamblin’s gift card and a “Read Banned Books” tumbler.
- Two runners-up receive a kit to personalize their own tote bags.
- All three winning designs will be printed on bookmarks.
