2011 Teen Video Challenge

You Are Here Poster

“You Are Here” Teen Video Contest

CSLP has launched the “You Are Here” Teen Video Challenge 2011, a national competition for teens to get involved with reading and their public library's summer reading program.

Teens across the country are invited to create a 30 to 90 second video using the 2011 teen slogan “You are Here” in combination with reading and libraries. The idea is to involve teens in summer reading, before and during the summer months, by being part of the process and have a chance to be creative and have their ideas heard.

Each teen winner will receive a monetary award, as will the associated public library. Winners will be announced by CSLP in spring 2011.
