Art Contest Winners


During the month of October, teen artists from across the city and county entered the Library's annual Teen Art contest. Winners were selected by the Main Library's Official Teen Advisory Board. An awards ceremony will be held in TeenSpot at the Main Library on Saturday, December 2nd at 2:00 pm. Winners receive certificates, ribbons, and Chipotle gift cards. First, second, and third place winners in both age categories receive a free class at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and art supplies! The Library would like to thank the Art Academy of Cincinnati for their generous sponsorship of the contest and awards ceremony.
