Homeschoolers, get ready to tell the world about your favorite book! Prepare a creative book report at home and present it informally to other families in a science fair-style format. What you create to represent your book is up to you. Build a diorama, design a game based on the plot and characters, or make a poster for the movie version. Or you might create a book in a bag project, make a clothes hanger mobile, or draw the story in a comic book format. The possibilities are endless! For homeschool students in grades K – 8.
We want to wish our 16th Annual Teen Art Contest winners a huge congratulations!
These teen artists were chosen by their fellow teens and PPLD staff. They were honored at an award ceremony in March at East Library.
To enter our 17th Annual Teen Art Contest, watch out for the announcement coming in late 2023.
