Islamorada Library is hosting an Online Art Contest for Children and Teens. The theme: “Life in the Florida Keys Now.” 

The prize? A $50 Amazon gift certificate. Here are the rules:

  • Submit a piece of art online to Ms. Charlotte at [email protected].
  • Two age groups: ages 8 to 12 and 13 to 18. Exceptions can be made on a case by case basis. Please indicate your name, age and contact information on your submission.
  • Your submission can be whatever you consider to be art: a poem, a picture, a song, a video, a meme, a short story…the only limit is your imagination.
  • The theme is “Life in the Florida Keys Now.” So obviously, you can address the pandemic and quarantine, but you don’t have to. It’s whatever that theme means TO YOU. If you have an older piece of art that you made before the pandemic and you feel it would fit into this theme, you can submit that too. We would love
  • Deadline for submission to the above email is April 30, 2020.
