Do you love to make videos? Do you aspire to be the next Steven Spielberg or Kathryn Bigelow? There’s a contest happening right now that’s perfect for you, and you could win a cash prize.
It’s the 2014 Teen Video Challenge. Here’s how it works: Contestants create a video 30 to 90 seconds long that encourages teens to read and use libraries this summer. Entrants need to include their interpretation of this year’s contest slogan, “Spark a Reaction.”
Visit the Teen Video Challenge page to learn more about the WA state contest, download a contest entry form, learn what to include in a video and where to upload the completed video, and how to send in a completed entry form. Contestants need to send in their completed forms by March 7. Any Washington teen or group of teens ages 13-18 may enter.
One individual or group will be selected as Washington’s Teen Video Challenge winner and receive a $275 award. The library listed on the entry form will receive from CSLP and a $25 gift certificate for Upstart products. The winner(s) will be notified in April.
In addition, the Washington video winner and all notable Teen Video Challenge entries from our state will be available on the Washington Summer Reading Program page.
