The Washington State Library and the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) are pleased to announce the winner of the 2016 Washington Teen Video Challenge. Congratulations for their excellent video go to Danielle Baxter, Elena Burnett, Francesca Feider-Blazer, Sofia Gellock, Ella Hikes, Jordan Kerns, Katrina Kuntz, Emma Leventhal, Caroline Shoemaker, Amy Skochdopoleand, Sabrina M. Uyeda, Ximenda Rodriguez Verdieri, and Devon Wappler, students at Forest Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in Bellevue, and patrons of the King County Library System. The school will receive a monetary award of $150 which they plan to use on a celebratory party for these talented teens. The Bellevue Public Library will receive prizes worth $50 from CSLP and Demco/Upstart.

All the 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, each video exhibited creativity and illustrated quality work on the part of the industrious teen film makers.

This national video competition is in its sixth 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-five states and over one hundred teens participated in the creation of these winning videos. Any of these videos, including those from other states, may be used by libraries and schools to promote summer reading in their communities.

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.
