Washington County Libraries Award Student Jacqueline Brown Top Honors
Sunset High School – Jacqueline Brown
Washington County, Oregon: The Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS) is proud to announce the winner of its 2014 Teen Summer Reading Art Contest: Jacqueline Brown!
A ninth-grader at Sunset High School, Jacqueline has been awarded top honors for her unique and electrifying design which depicts a reader poring over the wondrous contents of a book. Her design expertly captures this year’s Teen Summer Reading theme: Spark a Reaction.
Jacqueline will receive a $150 gift certificate for Powell’s Book and her art will appear on all countywide Teen Summer Reading publicity this summer.
This is the fifth consecutive year that WCCLS has encouraged teens to capture the spirit of Summer Reading through their creative art. A total of 35 pieces were submitted at the public libraries in Washington County during the months of January and February. In early March a panel of teen librarians met to review feedback collected from local Teen Library Councils and select the winning piece.
Once again 2nd Place and Honorable Mention winners were also awarded. These individuals will each receive a gift card for Dick Blick Art Materials.
Below is a list of 2014 Teen Summer Reading Art Contest winners:
- 1st Place – Jacqueline Brown (Sunset High School)
- 2nd Place – Katie Fo (Southridge High School)
- Honorable Mention – Rebecca Dan (Glencoe High School)
The Summer Reading Program inspires kids with a sense of wonder and helps to promote good learning habits. Summer Reading in Washington County will officially begin on June 1st. At that time teens will be invited to sign up at their local public library to earn prizes for reading, including tickets to Portland Thorn and Trail Blazers games, a round of miniature golf at Bullwinkle’s Family Fun Center, a coupon for one free open swim session at a Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation pool and a deep discount ride bracelet for a day full of activities at Oaks Amusement Park. For more 2014 summer reading details, in early May please visit www.wccls.org/tsrp.
This project was made possible by a literacy grant from the Oregon State Library.
