Southworth Library June Kids’ Art Contest & Display

Submit an original drawing of a comic character and their sidekick for our June art contest. This is a great opportunity for children to enter a friendly competition, develop creative skills and set personal goals. Each month there will be a new opportunity to enter a contest and show off a different creative skill! The contest is open to children in two categories: K-3 grade and 4-8 grade.

The artwork will be displayed in the library for all visitors to view, enjoy, and vote on. Participants will also receive a small gift upon entering their artwork. Prizes will be awarded in each category, chosen by the community.
