Teen Writing Contest

The Winners are here!

After all of the submissions were received, a team of PVLD librarians selected the top ten entries. Our judge, Rena Barron, judged the entries and selected first, second, and third place, as well as two honorable mentions. The winners were announced in a live virtual ceremony and now it's our honor to present the top ten entries from our 2023 Teen Writing Contest!
