Fame, glory, $100! ALSC/YALSA video contest

Show us what tweens/young teen + technology looks like at your library and win a $100 Amazon giftcard. We are calling for video submissions from librarians on the front line.
How are you handling the digital lives of tweens and young teens at your library? The 2012 Presidents’ Program at ALA in Anaheim will be a joint affair between ALSC and YALSA. We will be talking about tweens and young teens and exploring their use of technology. What is the life of a tween or young teen like in this digital age? What are the particular challenges and opportunities they face online? What should libraries be doing? Show us in a video!
  • Videos should be 2-3 minutes in length and created by librarians, for librarians. Show and tell us about an experience or project dealing with tweens and young teens and technology at your library. What worked? What didn’t? What did you learn?
  • Post it on YouTube with the tag “youthprezprogram12”.
  • Email co-chairs Tessa Michaelson Schmidt and Sarah Couri at tweenlibraryvideos@gmail.com with the YouTube link and your contact information.
  • Deadline for submissions: Monday, April 30, 2012 at midnight.
