Congratulations to Kaiyee, the middle school division winner! Kaiyee is a patron of Holgate Library.
And to Trina, the high school division winner, who frequents North Portland Library.
Each winner receives $100 from collage: curated art and craft supplies and have their art featured on thousands of gameboards this summer. Here are the 22 finalists in the contest, each showing their interpretation of this year’s theme, Space: A Universe of Stories.
Winners were selected by library staff who work with youth and the Summer Reading program. They considered creative interpretation of the theme, popular appeal, and how well the art would print. Trina’s work was felt to show the human connection reading creates; Kaiyee’s, the universe available in books. The results of the voting were very close this year. We were blown away by the quality and creativity shown by the entrants.
Summer Reading is made possible by gifts to The Library Foundation.
