The Teen Advisory Board of the Fulton County Library is calling all local teenage artists to sharpen their pencils and pull out their paint sets.

On Saturday, April 6, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., TAB members will accept original artwork created by 13- to 19-year-olds who possess a valid county library card. While any genre or medium of art is accepted, the entries must be framed and ready to display with a wire hanger. The size cannot exceed 20 inches by 24 inches.

Those submitting artwork are required to show their library card and pay an upfront entry fee. Artists can submit one piece for $5 or three works for $10.

Organizers of this fourth annual contest said library officials reserve the right of refusal to hang or judge any artwork they deem not appropriate for viewing by individuals of all ages.

All entries will remain on display at the library in McConnellsburg from the date of submission on April 6 through April 27. Aside from the winning pieces, all artwork must be picked up on Saturday, April 27, during regular library hours between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The winning pieces will remain on display at the library for one year, organizers said. Prizes of $50 and $25 are awarded for first- and second-place pieces in the 13 to 15 and 16 to 19 age divisions. All prize money is paid by the event sponsors, the library’s Teen Advisory Board.

Entry applications and rules are currently available at the Fulton County Library or by contacting an art teacher at the Central Fulton, Forbes Road and Southern Fulton school districts.
