Tech for teens

Teens can celebrate Teen Tech 2012 all March by participating in the Fraser Valley Regional Library’s "Picture This" photo contest

Teens can celebrate Teen Tech 2012 all March by participating in the Fraser Valley Regional Library’s “Picture This” photo contest running March 5 through 31.

Teens can show off their photographic skills and enter to win prizes, including an Apple iPad and $100 gift cards.

The contest is open to teens who have FVRL cards.

“This fun contest allows teens to engage with the library through technology and through our Facebook page,” says Jo-Ann Sleiman, FVRL Information Services Librarian and contest co-ordinator.

“It’s a great way for teens who are current members of FVRL to learn more about all the cool free resources and programs that we offer them. This contest is also a great incentive for those teens who haven’t yet become FVRL members to come in and get their free library card.”

Teens can submit up to five of their best photos. Winners will be chosen by a panel of FVRL staff and guest judges on April 6. Winning photos will be published on the FVRL Facebook page, along with announcements on Twitter and www.fvrl.ca.
