Wanted: Teens to create 2013 summer reading program videos

Submit a video and win cash!
Linda Goff, Youth Services Coordinator

The Collaborative Summer Library Program holds a teen video contest each year with money rewards for the winner and for their public library. This contest gives young people ages 13 – 18 the opportunity to make videos that encourage use of public libraries and promote reading all summer long.

Teens who create a 30 – 90 second video promoting summer reading at the public library, including their interpretation of the 2013 CSLP teen slogan "Beneath the Surface," have a chance to win $275 plus a $125 award for their library. Videos can be created individually or as a team. The winning video from Florida will become one of the official public service announcements for the National 2013 CSLP Summer Reading Program.

The deadline for video entries is February 1, 2013. The official application form and full contest rules can be found online here.:
