T-SHIRT DESIGN CONTEST FOR TEENS AT MIAMI-DADE PUBLIC LIBRARIES
(MIAMI, AUGUST 2, 2012) – The Miami-Dade Public Library System is inviting teens, 12-19, to participate in its annual T-Shirt Design Contest promoting the theme "It Came from the Library!" Entry forms are available at all library branches and here through September 8, 2012.
The teen with the winning design will receive a Barnes & Noble Nook Color, an autographed football, and will have his design reproduced on T-Shirts to be worn by participants during the official observance of Teen Read Week, October 15-24. Teen Read Week is a literacy initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association, which encourages teens to read for the fun of it.
The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Miami-Dade Public Library and the Miami Dolphins Foundation.
