SAN DIEGO – San Diego County Library is celebrating its centennial, 100 Years of Stories, in 2013. The library is teaming up with Blick Art Materials to host a countywide centennial art contest running now through May 31. Customers can drop off their 100 Years of Stories themed submissions at any of the library’s 35 locations. The contest is open to all ages with categories for kids (12 and below), teens (13-17), and adults (18 and older). Prizes will be awarded to the top three winners in each age group.

Artwork must not exceed an 11" x 17" sheet of paper; no minimum size is required. Recommended formats include pencil, pen, crayon, marker, charcoal, and/or paint. The first place winners in each age group will have their artwork featured on bookmarks distributed at all county library locations. Blick Art Materials is sponsoring the Centennial Art Contest through donating art supplies and supporting the framing of the nine winning pieces, which will then serve as a rotating art exhibit at branch locations.

"Art is a form of expression that is universally recognized throughout various mediums and cultures," said library director José Aponte. "The Centennial Art Contest will bring customers of all ages and backgrounds together to create and explore art and literature at the library."

Select county library locations will be hosting art contest programs where customers can use donated art supplies to create their submissions. For more information, visit
