Hey kids (and adults)! It’s time for the 3rd Annual Historical Zine Contest!
Washington State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State, is sponsoring the 3rd Annual Historical Zine Contest with co-sponsors Washington State Archives and Timberland Regional Library. Participants are asked to create a Zine about some aspect of Washington History.
Washington residents from 4th grade and up (yes, adults, too!) are asked to participate.
All three sponsors have a multitude of resources that can provide fantastic historical material you can use to create your Zine.
• Washington State Library has many online resources that include books, maps, newspapers and photos. You can also find featured images from these digital collections on their Pinterest and Flickr pages. And don’t forget that you can visit the library to see some resources in person!
• Washington State Archives has an extensive print collection, as well as many images at the Digital Archives.
• And you can visit the Timberland Libraries to explore their NW Reference Collection, Zine Collection and Zine Resource Collection.
One winner from each age category and will receive a $75 prize!
Visit the Zine Contest Webpage for the entry form, a video on how to make a zine, and to see some of our past winners.
Entries will be accepted from September 1, 2017 – December 15, 2017. So grab your pencils, pens, typewriters or computers and start creating!
