The Dayton Metro Library invites creative teens to show off their photography skills by entering the 2014 Teen Photo Contest sponsored by the Friends of the Library. Entries will be accepted February 3 through March 3, 2014, from any teen in grades 7-12 living in the greater Dayton area. The contest categories are Color, Black & White, Digital Enhancement and Phone Photo.

All photos will be printed and placed on display in the Main Library’s auditorium, winners will be formally announced and prizes will be awarded at a reception on Thursday, April 24 in the Main Auditorium from 6:30 to 8pm.
