Geek Out @ Your Library!
It's Teen Tech Week! This year's theme is "Geek Out @ Your Library," so our Teen Advisory Board (TAB) ran a contest. They called it "Secret Geek" and the idea was for teens to express what makes them a geek through art, photography, or an essay. We got twelve entries: five drawings, three photos, and four essays. A panel of five librarians judged the entries anonymously based on how well they expressed the creators' geekiness. (I did not judge, since I knew who made each entry.) The librarians chose Genni's entry as the winner, which was photography of a clay sculpture she made of Link from The Legend of Zelda. Genni wins a $30 gift card to Amazon.com to further her geekiness! They also chose three honorable mentions: Sarah, for her essay on music; Nikki, for her creative photos of Domo; and Katie, for her essay on movies. Thanks to everyone who took the time to enter! All of the entries are hanging on or around the bulletin board in the teen section, so check them out until the end of the month.
