CSLP Teen Video Challenge 2012 Announced
For the 2012 Summer Reading Program, the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP), working through member states, will be soliciting amateur videos produced by teenagers, to serve as the official CSLP sanctioned summer reading teen videos. The purpose of this contest is to give teens the opportunity to make videos that encourage use of their public libraries and promote reading all summer long. There will be one winning video chosen by each participating CSLP member state. These will not be narrowed down to create one national winner. Each state winning video will become one of the official Teen PSAs for the 2012 CSLP Summer Reading Program (“Own the Night”). All CSLP member states will have access to the official winning videos from the CSLP website. Each winner will receive a $275 award from CSLP, and the affiliated library will receive $150 in prizes from CSLP and Upstart. Read more at cslpreads.org.
Erica Compton, Sue Walker, and Staci Shaw will coordinate the contest for Idaho. Details are still being worked out, but the general timeline follows:
November 29thand December 1st: Online information sessions for library staff interested in promoting the contest.
December – February: Production of videos
