Teen Video Winners Announced!

The Washington State Library and the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) are pleased to announce the winner of the 2014 Washington Teen Video Challenge. Congratulations to Grace and Luke Pearsons from the Ellensburg Public Library for the video, Spark a Reaction. Grace and Luke will receive a monetary award of $275 and the Ellensburg Public Library will receive prizes worth $125 from CSLP and Upstart.

All videos submitted exemplify the diversity and creativity of our state and of the teens that created them. Whether produced by an individual or a group of teens, all exhibit creativity and illustrate quality work on the part of the industrious teen film makers. Enjoy the humor, literary references, and original music compositions used to communicate the "Spark a Reaction" idea and the value that teens place in their public libraries.

This national video competition is in its fourth year of encouraging teens to get involved with promoting summer reading and public libraries with a focus on the annual CSLP theme. Each participating state selected one winning video to be named the official CSLP Teen Video Challenge state winner. Twenty-six states and over one hundred teens participated in the creation of these winning videos. Any of the winning videos, including those from other states, may be used by libraries and schools to promote summer reading in their communities.

CSLP plans to continue the Teen Video Challenge for 2015, and Washington will participate, so watch for details this fall.

CSLP is a consortium of states working together, sharing ideas, expertise, and costs to produce a high-quality summer reading program for children, teens, and adults.
