Teen writing contest is under way
Rosemount Minnesota P.O. Box 192 / 312 Oak St. 55024

A picture is worth a thousand words. Teens can showcase their writing skills by viewing a picture and writing a short story -- 1,000 words or less -- about what's going on in the picture to win prizes. Dakota County Library's annual teen short story contest runs Oct. 1-31 and is open to teens 12 to 18 who live or attend school in Dakota County.

Contest rules and an entry form are available online or at any library branch. Entries can be submitted to any Dakota County Library by Wednesday, Oct. 31. All entries will be published online on the library's teen web page.

Six winners will be contacted by the library. Each winner will receive a subscription to Teen Ink magazine and a Barnes & Noble gift card, courtesy of the Dakota County Library Foundation.
