CSLP Video Challenge

CSLP, the national organization that creates and coordinates the summer library program, is hosting a teen PSA contest in 2011 for those states interested in participating. The Division for Libraries, Technology, and Community Learning, (DLTCL) is collaborating with the Youth Services Section (YSS) of the Wisconsin Library Association (WLA) to offer the contest in Wisconsin. Jill Lininger, Racine Public Library and Past Chair of YSS, will be coordinating the submissions and judging of the videos. Barb Huntington, DLTCL, will manage the administrative aspects of the contest.

Public librarians are asked to promote the contest with their teens and teen advisory groups and encourage them to submit a video. The teens submitting the winning video for Wisconsin will win $250 from CSLP, and the sponsoring library will receive $100. This might make a good fun raiser for the library’s teen area.

The application form, model release form, and rules for the contest on line at www.wla.lib.wi.us/yss/videochallenge.htm. Videos must be posted on YouTube by March 1st. Wisconsin's winning video will be sent to CSLP. All the winning videos will be available to libraries around the county to use in promotion of the 2011 Teen Summer Reading Program, "You Are Here." CSLP has resources that can be used by the teens in creating their video, including music sound tracks. Instructions on how to access the resources are included on Wisconsin's Video Challenge website.
