Teens Can Win in 2018 Summer Reading Video Challenge

Teens ages 13-18 can show off their creativity and win a $100 prize for themselves and a prize worth $50 for their local library in the Collaborative Summer Library Program’s (CSLP) 2018 Teen Video Challenge. Deadline to enter is February 22.

Full details are available on our Summer Reading LibGuide (partway down the page.)

For this contest, Wyoming teens are invited to create a 30 to 90 second video with their unique interpretation of the 2018 slogan Libraries Rock! in combination with reading and libraries. The idea is to involve them in summer reading, before and during the summer months, by being part of the process. This is an opportunity for them to display their creativity and have their ideas heard before a national audience. It’s a great project to do with your young adult patrons.

Videos should be uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo, titled “2018 TVC – WY – Unique Name.” Entry and model release forms must be sent, postmarked by February 20, to 2018 TVC Chris Van Burgh, 2800 Central Ave., Cheyenne WY 82002. Late entries will not be considered.

You’ll find full guidelines, forms, and many more resources on the Summer Reading LibGuide, including this sample (silly!) how-to video from the Wyoming State Library using the 2016 theme. Created with an iPad, it runs through the process and suggests editing tools and audio and image sources.
