What's New!

2015 Teen Fiction Contest

The challenge:

Write an original fiction story of up to 2,500 words that begins with the sentence: “Sunlight and shadow flashed across the mountain.”* What happens from there is up to you!

Who can enter:

Middle school or high school students who are El Paso County residents.

Deadline:

Original, previously unpublished stories and entry forms must be submitted to Pikes Peak Library District staff by no later than 9:00 p.m. on June 30, 2015.

The top five middle school and the top five high school entries will be published in a PPLD eBook anthology. Winners will be notified by August 14, 2015.

See the entry form for official rules.

We take our theme for this year’s teen fiction contest from the library theme: Transformation at Elevation.

*A big thanks to Scribes & Bards (East Library), Teen Writing Group (Library 21c), and the Penrose Teen Writers’ Association (Penrose Library) for the selection of this year’s first line!

Submit your artwork to our Teen Art Contest!

The theme for our 2015 Teen Art Contest is Out of This World. Think beyond the scope of the everyday and explore something "out of this world" through art. Imagine a fantastical realm or the deepest depths of space and express yourself on canvas, cardboard, paper, wood, or even metal; the medium is your choice!

Artwork will be accepted on March 2 and 3 at the following libraries: East, Fountain, High Prairie, Library 21c, Manitou Springs, Monument, Penrose, Sand Creek, and County Mobile Library stops.

Guidelines

  • All entrants must be in grades 6 - 12 in March 2015.
  • All entrants must submit an online submission form and Artwork Agreement Form.
  • Entrants may submit only one piece of art.
  • Jurors reserve the right to decline inappropriate entries.
  • Entries must be two-dimensional and no more than two inches deep, including frame. Any textural elements (glued-on items such as pencils, pennies, etc.) must be inside a frame to prevent damage.

For more information, email rphilipsen@ppld.org or call (719) 884-9800, x6336.
