During April and May each year, South Carolina Talking Book Services offers a fine arts creative outlet for blind and visually impaired students in our state.

It is now time to enter the 2024 SCSL Talking Book Services art competition.  Any visually impaired/blind child or young adult still in school may enter.  Artwork can be in any medium, but must be tactile.

There are three age categories:  ages 6 to 10, ages 11 to 15, and ages 16 and up.  Only one entry per student is allowed. 

First, Second and Third place are awarded in each category.  One piece is selected by the State Librarian to win the Best in Show Award and be permanently displayed in the State Library. 

Registration and artwork must be delivered to the SC State Library building no later than 5:00 pm, March 8, 2024.  Winners will be notified on April 5, 2024, at a special Art Gallery reception. If assistance is needed in getting the artwork to the SC State Library, please contact Talking Book Services.
