Siouxland Libraries invites teens to Imagine, Design, and Create an original piece of artwork for its 2020 Teen Art Contest. Teens may submit artwork in any medium on any subject—feel free to get creative with supplies! Please keep in mind content must be rated “G” in order to be accepted. Only one entry per person will be accepted. 

To enter: Submit a photo of your art through this online form. Artwork will be judged by its photograph, so please use good lighting and focus. Submissions are due by Friday, June 12th.

By submitting your artwork you agree to the following:

  • Submission of artwork grants Siouxland Libraries the right to publish images of it on its website, virtual gallery, and social media pages.
  • Submissions must be original artwork. Any form of plagiarism will result in immediate disqualification.
  • In the event Siouxland Libraries hosts an Art Exhibit at the Downtown Library, Siouxland Libraries does not guarantee that all artwork will be displayed, depending on our limited space.
  • Siouxland Libraries cannot assume responsibility beyond the normal precautions for artwork displayed in the Downtown Library Teen Art Exhibit. Art is left at the library at your own risk.

Awards: First-, second- and third-place winners will be selected from three age groups: 6th-7th grade, 8th- 9th grade, and 10th-12th grade. Winners will be determined by a panel of local artists as well as Mayor Paul TenHaken.
