TEEN CONTESTS IN MARCH
DeKalb Public Library has registered for our high school patrons to participate in the Illinois Abraham Lincoln Award voting process. Students are invited to read and review four or more of the twenty books nominated to help determine this year’s winner! You will also be competing for a chance to win a $50.00 Amazon gift card. Reading contest runs March 1 (9:00 a.m.) – March 15 (noon).
To participate teens must do the following:
- be in grades 9-12 to participate
- read 4 of the 20 Lincoln Award 2018 nominees
- fill out a brief review for each and turn it into Teen Room staff
Winner of the Amazon gift card will be chosen, by drawing, on March 15 at 12:00 p.m. and announced that day.
Need an additional incentive? Receive a small prize of your choice for every review you turn in. Available in the Teen Room: Monday – Thursday (2:45-8:00 p.m.), Friday (2:45-6:00 p.m.), Saturday/Sunday (1:00-5:00 p.m.).
Want to participate in another contest?
Teens are readers. Teens are gamers. How about a contest that combines both? We’re having a prize drawing for the video game NBA 2K18, the most popular video game played in our Teen Room, for your PS4 system. This contest is for teens in grades 6-12.
Ways to enter:
- present your library card in good standing to staff
- checkout and read one of our book discussion books
- attend a book discussion and participate OR do all three to increase your chances of winning!
The drawing will be held on March 30, 3:00 p.m. in the Teen Room.
Both of these contests are entirely FREE. They are sponsored by the Friends of the DeKalb Public Library. For additional information, please contact Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (815) 756-9568 ext. 3400.
Tweens, if you are looking for the arts & crafts program of our regular Tuesday night line-up, we are now meeting in a new location: The Nancy D. Castle Collaboration Studio, on the first floor across from the Teen Room.
Now named “Art & Design,” this creative workshop brings together traditional and new art forms and explores different types of design. Think of it as more of a STEAM approach than simply “arts and crafts.”
This workshop is intended for tweens and teens, ages 10 and up, and is held on the second Tuesday of each month, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
