2016 Teen Video Challenge


The New York State Library is partnering with the National Collaborative Summer Library Program to offer the Teen Video Challenge.

Teens are encouraged to create a video promoting Summer Reading at the public library, which would include their interpretation of the 2016 CSLP teen slogan "Get in the Game - Read." They can win $150 for themselves and a $50 award for their library.

One winning video created by a teen or group of teens will be selected as the New York State Winner in the national CSLP "2016 Teen Video Challenge."

All state winning videos will be official 2016 CSLP promotional videos and will be viewed nationwide.

Deadline is March 4th so what are you waiting for?
