How does Teen Library Challenge work?

How do I play?
Middle and High Schoolers can enter to win a prize by filling out any three squares in a row (down, across, or diagonal). Get a second prize entry for completing the whole card. You can use audiobooks, articles, graphic novels, podcasts, or fan fiction; everything from this summer counts! Just make sure you write something different in each square; no counting anything twice. Good luck and have fun!

How do I win?
Play between June 8, 2020 and August 24, 2020. Turn in your challenge card at any branch of The Seattle Public Library, email a photo of the front of your card to teens@spl.org or post to social media with #SeattleLibraryTeens to be entered into our prize drawing!
