The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) announced the winners of the 2016 Teen Video Challenge.  The Teen Video Challenge is a national competition for teens to get involved with reading and their public library's summer reading program.  Winning videos were selected at the state level to be recognized as an official CSLP Teen Video Challenge winner for 2016.

This video competition was in its sixth year of encouraging teens to get involved with promoting summer reading and public libraries with a focus on the CSLP 2016 slogan, “Get in the Game - Read.” Each participating
state selected one winning video to be named the official CSLP Teen Video Challenge state winner for 2016. Twenty-five states and over one hundred teens participated in the creation of these winning videos.

Idaho's contest this year was sponsored by the Idaho Library Association, with support from ICfL. Nine entries were submitted, and judges from Idaho Public Television and the library community chose the entry by Christopher Hurt, a senior from Boise High School as the winning video.

You can see every state's winning video on CSLP’s website at www.cslpreads.org.  All winning videos can be used by all teens and all public libraries to promote summer reading nationwide.

For their hard work and creativity, each winner for this year’s competition will receive a monetary award of $150 and the awards can be used as each winner sees fit.

The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) is a consortium of states working together to provide a unified summer reading theme along with professional art and evidence-based materials so that member libraries can provide high-quality summer reading programs at the lowest possible cost and to play a significant role in literacy initiatives.
