Reading through this months VOYA (the one we're featured in, by the way) I came across two fabulous contests for teens:

The National Peace Essay Contest-

Teens in grades nine to twelve are invited to assume to role of Advisor to the United Nations Secretary General and design a program that dissuades youth from participating in violent conflict. There are fabulous prizes, including a $1,000 scholarship for the winner from each state who then goes on to compete for national awards. The awards program includes an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C.! For more information visit http://www.usip.org/npec.

Teen Tech Week Logo Contest-

A new initiative from the Young Adult Library Services Association, Teen Tech Week encourages teens to use their libraries for more than just books! Teens can design a logo for Teen Tech Week, which will be used on all marketing a promotional materials. The winning teen will also get a $50 Borders gift card, and the library that submits the winning logo will get $100 worth of free books! Rules and the entry form can be found at http://www.ala.org/teentechweek.

Good luck!
