Teen films wanted for challenge
The Young Adult Librarians of New Hampshire announces the 2014 Teen Video Challenge, part of a national competition that asks teens to create 30- to 90-second public service announcements that promote reading and using public libraries.
Using the Collaborative Summer Library Program’s 2014 national slogan for teens, “Spark a Reaction,” teens are asked incorporate themes from science into their videos.

Videos will be judged on creativity, message clarity and relevance, motivation and inspiration, and overall impact. Participants must be 13 to 18 years old and legal residents of New Hampshire. They may work on their own or as a team. Deadline to enter is Feb. 14, 2014.
New Hampshire’s top entry will be awarded $275, with the winner’s public library receiving $125. Each participating state’s winning video will join other state winners as official national Collaborative Summer Library Program 2014 Teen Video champions, and will be used to promote summer reading across the United States.
