And check out the other entries to the 2013 Washington Teen Video Challenge:
These videos 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 "Beneath the Surface" idea and the value that teens place in their public libraries.
This national video competition is in its third year of encouraging teens to get involved with promoting summer reading and public libraries with a focus on the CSLP 2013 slogan, "Beneath the Surface." Each participating state selected one winning video to be named the official CSLP Teen Video Challenge state winner for 2013. 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 2014, 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.
