Expand your imagination with 13th annual Growing Wild Things Writing & Illustrating Contest

The Friends of the Children’s Library & The Sands Children’s Writing Group & The Huntington Beach Children’s Library Present Growing Wild Things, the 13th Annual Writing & Illustrating Contest for students in pre-K through Grade 8.

Imagine your character finds a packet of seeds stuck in a book at the library. The decide to plant the seeds in a pot on the librarian’s desk, or maybe in some other location. When unexpected things start growing, your character wonders if maybe they should have read the label first. How will they ever explain this to the librarian?

Write and/or illustrate a story about what they’ve grown. And please don’t forget to tell us what happens to the librarian.

Contest entries due at the Children’s Library Desk by 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 21, 2019. Winners receive a Barnes & Noble gift card and certificate at our Annual Awards Ceremony at the Huntington Beach Public Library on Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2020.
