Teen Read Week - October 2018 - It's Written in the Stars


Teen Read Week happens each October to encourage teens to read for the fun of it! To celebrate, we’re having three contests that span the whole month.


  • Design a Bookmark Contest: Create a bookmark for our 14th annual contest that features the 2018 Teen Read Week theme text, “It’s Written in the Stars…Read!” The winning design will be professionally printed and distributed at all SCPL locations (and the winner’s school library), and the artist will receive a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card!


  • Candy Counting Contest: Visit your local SCPL location to view the candy jar and take a guess. The teen who guesses the closest (or correctly!) will walk away with all the candy!


  • It’s Written in the Stars…Read Contest! Follow @scplteens on Instagram and/or Facebook, then keep an eye out for weekly star-themed posts. Follow the instructions they give to enter to win a thematic Teen Read Week prize package!

For official contest rules, templates, or more details about Teen Read Week, contact the Teen Department at (864) 596-3506 or teens@infodepot.org! Winners of all contests will be announced in November.
