Tell your story.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Teens can showcase their writing skills by viewing a picture and writing a short story — 1,000 words or fewer — about what's going on in a picture to win prizes. Dakota County Library's annual Teen Short Story Contest begins Oct. 1, lasts until Oct. 31 and is open to teens 12–18 years old who live or attend school in Dakota County.
 
The photo can be found online at www.dakotacounty.us/library, search short story, and on the contest entry form. Contest rules and the entry form are available online or at any Library branch starting Oct. 1. Entries can be submitted to any Library location or via email to julia.carlis@co.dakota.mn.us by 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 31.
 
Six winners between two age categories will be announced during the week of Nov. 23. Each winner will receive prizes courtesy of the Dakota County Library Foundation. Winning entries will also be published on the Library's web page.
