Teens: Create a video promoting Summer Reading and you could win cash

Calling all teens! Break out your director skills, your smart phones or video devices, and show your love of libraries, and you could win a $275 cash prize this spring and have your video shared with libraries across the country!

Sponsored by the Cooperative Summer Library Program with support from the Indiana State Library, the theme of this year's Teen Video Challenge is "Spark a Reaction!" 

A little bit of imagination in a short (30-90 seconds) public service announcement could make you the Teen Video Challenge Winner!  The video produced by an Indiana student or group of students that best encourages use of their local public libraries and promotes reading all summer long will take away the contest prize, including extra prizes for their home library.

Videos and completed entry forms must be submitted by March 3, 2014. For more information, including where and how to submit your video, judging criteria and downloadable entry forms, check out the state's 2014 Teen Video Challenge contest page. For free resources to help with your video, or to see past winners and other information, visit the CSLP Teen Video Challenge page.

The Jasper County Public Library does have a policy about shooting videos on library property. Please read our JCPL Photography, Videotaping and Other Recording Devices Policy before shooting your videos!

Visit or contact Suzanne Walker from the Indiana State Library at (317) 234-5649, to learn more about the program.

May the best video win!
