Student video contest promotes libraries, reading

December 18, 2012

By Staff

Students can encourage others to read by participating in the 2013 Teen Video Challenge, a competition to encourage teenagers to use public libraries’ summer reading programs.

The project, sponsored by the Collaborative Summer Library Program, encourages youths to create a 30- to 90-second video interpreting the theme “Beneath the Surface” to promote reading and libraries.

State Librarian Rand Simmons said the contest presents a chance for budding filmmakers to showcase creativity and have their work viewed by a national audience.

Each state winner, as well as his or her favorite public library, receives a cash award.
