Youth Photography Competition

For Students Ages 10-18

Calling all aspiring photographers! The La Vista Public Library is hosting a monthly competition for tweens and teens. Each month there will be a new photo category, so if you don’t win this month, there's always a chance for another shot!

Submissions will be uploaded to be viewed from this page, as well as displayed inside the library. After the final date for submission, a google poll will be opened for the public to vote for their favorite online, or they can fill out a paper ballot at the library.

The top photo with the most votes will win a $10 gift card to Barnes & Noble.

Interested? Here’s what you need to submit with your entry

  • ONE Photo that portrays the contest's theme.
  • Your Full Name and Age (We will only post your first name and last initial).
  • A Phone Number we can reach you at if you win.
  • A Brief Caption (1-2 sentences) that contains… 
    • The names of any people in your photo (Remember to ask permission if you take someone's photo!)
    • What your photo is of and why you picked it.

Paper submissions can be dropped off at the La Vista Public Library or mailed to...
