Editor's Note: The following is a press release from the Dakota County Library system.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Teens can showcase their writing skills by viewing a picture and writing a short story—1,000 words or less—about what’s going on in the picture to win prizes.

Dakota County Library’s annual Teen Short Story Contest runs Oct. 1–31 and is open to teens 12–18 who live or attend school in Dakota County. The photo can be found in the library’s Fall Teen Program Guide or online at www.dakotacounty.us/library, search short story.

All entries will be published online on the library’s teen web page. Six winners will be contacted by the Library. Each winner will receive a subscription to Teen Ink magazine and a Barnes & Noble gift card, courtesy of the Dakota County Library Foundation.
