Student video contest promotes libraries, reading
December 18, 2012
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.
