March Manga Madness is back for 2021!
All interested teens in 7th-12th grade may submit one piece of original, manga-style artwork for judging by the patrons of the Smith Public Library. The grand prize winner will receive a $100 gift card to either Books Kinokuniya or Barnes & Noble, with a $50 gift card going to the runner up.
Artwork will be accepted the week of March 8th and must be submitted by Saturday March 13th at 5pm. Judging will take place on the library’s Facebook page the following week, March 15th-20th. Patrons will vote by liking their favorite piece of artwork. The grand prize winner and the runner up will be contacted on Monday, March 22nd, and will be announced on Facebook shortly afterwards. In the event of a tie for either place, library staff members will vote to break the tie.
Artwork may be submitted in-person at the teen reference desk or by emailing a JPG or PNG of the artwork to Kelsey.Sidwell@wylietexas.gov.
