Grant Hawkins’ scenic snap from a trip to Yellowstone National Park took home first place in last year’s Summer Teen Photography Contest.

For the fourth straight year, the Buckhead branch of the Atlanta- Fulton County Public Library system will be asking kids that age-old question: What did you do over summer vacation? Youngsters ages 12 and older who capture images from their school break on film— whether they went to the beach, took a road trip or simply had a staycation—are invited to enter the Summer Teen Photography Contest for free. Submissions of their best vacation shots should be made in the form of a printed 8-by-10-inch photo and placed in an envelope with the teen’s name and email or local phone number. Entries should be hand delivered or mailed to the Buckhead branch, attention: Amy Alexander, by Sept. 6. After the winners are announced and prizes awarded, all entries will be displayed at the library in October as part of the annual photography exhibit. – JB
