The University Park Public Library and the Highland Park Library are partnering together to present Close Encounters: Teen Cupcake Wars at Highland Park Library from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. on July 16.
Teens will participate in a cosmic cupcake competition and make their own galactic creations as part of the Tween and Teen Summer Reading Club, sponsored by Christine McKenny and Allie Beth Allman & Associates.
The Tween and Teen Summer Reading Club is a summer-long program where students entering seventh grade through twelfth-grade log their reading hours each week to be entered into a drawing to win one of three gift cards from a local business. Those who read 50 or more hours will be entered into a grand prize drawing at the end of the program.
Teen Cupcake Wars is a special presentation to gather participating students together for a fun event. Tweens and Teens will use surprise ingredients and toppings to create their own cupcakes in a special version of the popular TV Show Cupcake Wars.
