The 27th annual Our Own Expressions contest will start Jan. 23! Teens in grades 7-12 who live or go to school in Pierce County are invited to submit their art, photography, poetry and short stories for a chance to win prizes and publication.
The Teen Writing and Art Contest Our Own Expressions recognizes the artistic and creative voice, vision, and talent of Pierce County teens.
Every January, Pierce County Library System invites students in grades 7-12 to submit poetry, short stories, art, and photography to be reviewed in an anonymous and randomized judging process. Selected winners are then published in a chapbook which is added to the library collection.
With generous support from the Pierce County Library Foundation, the library awards prizes to the final winners in four categories:
Each category has three age groups:
First place $150 Amazon gift card
Second place $125 Amazon gift card
Third place $100 Amazon gift card
Meet teen writers, poets, artists, and photographers from all over Pierce County and get to know each other. This is your place to share, connect, and build a teen art community online!
