yalsa logoThe Hub is thrilled to be a part of YALSA’s Teen Read Week Teen Blogging contest!

Teens aged 12 -18 can sign up now through August 1, 2014 to participate in the contest for a chance to guest blog for YALSA’s young adult literature blog, The Hub. Selected teens will blog about a wide range of topics related to YA literature while also further developing their writing and blogging skills.

Blog posts written by the teen bloggers will be featured during the week of October 12 -18 in celebration of Teen Read Week.   Selected participants will be notified in August.  Visit the Teen Read Week website for all the details and guidelines about the contest. Teen Read Week will be celebrated Oct. 12 -18 this year with the theme “Turn Your Dreams into Reality @ your library.” Join the online discussion with the hashtag #TRW14.

If you’re a teen, we want to hear from you. And if you work with teens, spread the word about this exciting opportunity! We love featuring teen voices on The Hub, and can’t wait for Teen Read Week this year.
