Deadline Nearing for Teen Video Challenge



We are counting down to the deadline for the Teen Video Challenge. One video created by a teen or group of teens to promote summer reading will be selected as the Wyoming state winner and will receive $100 along with an award worth $50 for their local public library.

Wyoming youth ages 13-18 are eligible and are invited to create a 30 to 90 second video with their unique interpretation of the 2018 Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) slogan Libraries Rock! in combination with reading and libraries.

“We know there are so many talented and creative teens out there,” said Chris Van Burgh, CSLP coordinator at the Wyoming State Library. “We’d love to see the ideas they come up with and share those with a national audience. It’s a great way for them to get involved with summer reading even before summer arrives.”

Videos should be uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo, titled “2018 TVC – WY – Unique Name.” Entry and model release forms are required, postmarked by February 22, to “2018 TVC, Chris Van Burgh, 2800 Central Ave., Cheyenne WY 82002.” Deadline is February 22; late entries will not be considered.

Full details are available on our Summer Reading LibGuide.

Please contact Chris Van Burgh at  chris.vanburgh@wyo.gov or 307-777-3642 with any questions or to let her know if you are working on a video or working with teens who plan to submit a video. All state winning videos will become property of CSLP and will be viewed nationwide in conjunction with the official 2018 CSLP campaign.
