Dakota County Library

Teen Short Story Contest
Worth a thousand words

​Dakota County Library’s annual Teen Short Story contest runs Oct. 1–31 and is open to teens 12–18 years old who live in or attend school in Dakota County. Teens can showcase their writing skills by using a designated photo to inspire a short story — 1,000 words or less — to win prizes.

Beginning Oct. 1, the contest photo can be found on the Teen Short Story Contest web page.  Entries will be accepted at all Dakota County Library locations until the end of business Thursday, Oct. 31. Download the entry form.

Six winners will be contacted by the Library. Each winner will receive a yearlong subscription to Teen Ink magazine and a Barnes & Noble gift card courtesy of the Dakota County Library Foundation.
