The Camas Public Library is hosting a Scary Story Contest for kids in third through 12th grades. Stories must be 500 words or less and be inspired by one of these prompts: 1) You are walking alone in a graveyard at midnight. 2) You make the mistake of stealing from the town witches. Stories must be submitted by 5 p.m. Oct. 14. Turn in stories to the library’s front desk or submit it online through a form at cityofcamas.us/library. Three winners will get a prize and be asked to read their story at the library’s Saturday Spooktacular Halloween Party on Oct. 21.
