Dakota County Library's annual Teen Short Story Contest 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 in the Library's Fall Program Guide or online at, search short story. Contest rules and an entry form are available online or at any Library branch. Entries can be submitted to any Library location or via email to by midnight Friday, Oct. 31.
