DANVILLE — The Danville Library Foundation announces the winners of its Teen’s T-shirt Design Contest.
McKenzie Zarn’s entry was selected as the grand prize winner and Deavyn Transou’s was chosen as the runner up. Zarn, 15, will receive a $50 gift card and T-shirt with her winning design. Transou, 14, will receive a $25 gift card.
The T-shirt design contest was for teens ages 12-18. The designs were judged according to originality, creativity and best use of this year’s Summer Reading Program theme, “Paws To Read,” according to a press release.
Each child who participated received a coupon for a free book at the Summer Used Book Sale on July 26. A celebration for the children participating in the contest and the Summer Reading Program will be at the library in the first floor meeting room at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 18. A cake featuring the winning design and punch will be served. The event is open to the public.
The winning design will be printed on T-shirts that will be available for $10 each at the front desk of the Danville Public Library, 319 N. Vermilion St., while supplies last. The shirts are available in candy pink or Caribbean blue and come in adult and children’s sizes. Proceeds of the sale of the T-shirts will help provide programs and services for the library.
