Deadline approaching for teen Creativity Gala submissions

Teens entering 6th grade or higher this fall are invited to read poetry, play music, sing, or perform stand-up comedy during a special celebration of teen creativity in August hosted by Fauquier County Public Library.

Artwork, videos, crafts and creative writing are also being accepted for exhibition at the Express Yourself Summer Creativity Gala. The deadline for performing or for submitting a creative work for exhibition is 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7. The gala is planned for 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 14, at the John Barton Payne Building.

Submit artwork in person at any Fauquier library or by e-mail. Call or e-mail Anna Ellis, 439-9728, if you would like to perform at the event or for more information.

The gala is the final special event of the Express Yourself summer reading program for teens at Fauquier County public libraries. Express Yourself also features anime, gaming, and a series of creativity challenges, some of which can be the impetus for entries for the Summer Creativity Gala.

Teens are encouraged to register for the summer reading program and log the number of books read each week. The library’s goal is for children and teens to collectively read and log 27,000 books by Aug. 15.
