Many teen artists have a limited number of places to freely express and showcase their talents. This contest is an opportunity to share your talent and reach a large audience - all who visit our libraries. 

Contest Dates:

Artwork was submitted November 1-14, 2023 by 8 p.m. Prizes will be awarded within each category (Grades 6-9, Grades 10-12 and People's Choice). Entrants must reside in Johnson County and/or attend a Johnson County school. Winners will be announced in January.

Teen Art Contest Reception:

All submissions will be on display at the White River Branch from 11 a.m.- 1 p.m. on Saturday, January 6 for the Teen Art Contest Reception. All artists are invited to attend to showcase their submissions and pick up their work. The general public is encouraged to stop by, vote for their favorite entry for the "People's Choice Award" and meet the artists. Please join us as we celebrate our talented teen artists' artwork and enjoy light refreshments.

Artwork Display Information:

If you are unable to attend the reception, please call Daniel Franco to arrange a date/time for pick-up. Submissions will be held for three months and then the library has the right to discard if artwork is not picked up by then. 

If you have any questions, please contact Daniel Franco, 317-885-1330.
