double theme, fantasy and quarantine. (You can create based on either one theme
or both themes combined.) Participants may enter once in each category and earn
SLP points that can count toward winning big prizes! A PDF of the completed 2020
Teen Anthology will be available for download by early fall.

Virtual island life: share your game screenshots and experiences! "Animal Crossing" has always been
a great outlet for creativity and stress relief--but it's especially important now when coping with
an ongoing pandemic. It doesn't matter how far along in the game you are; you can still participate in the
following challenges and see what other teens have been terraforming (and more!) on library social.

- Island Spotlight: send us your best island screenshots (up to 6)! What ae the favorite parts of your island
and why? What was the hardest thing to make?


- Library Challenge: build and show off your island libraries! They can be full-on residential homes
transformed into public libraries, outdoor libraries, or a mini home library! Have little free
libraries around your island? We'd love to see those too!
