State Library’s Teen Video Challenge has begun

Interested in creating video content? Love your local public library? You’re in luck, because the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) Teen Video Challenge (TVC) is underway!

Use your imagination and create a video promoting summer reading at the public library that includes the 2018 CSLP TVC teen slogan “Libraries Rock!,” and you could win $100 for yourself and a $50 award for your public library partner!

One winning video will be selected as the Washington winner, and all state winning videos will be official 2018 CSLP promotional videos and viewed nationwide!

The fine print

  • Any Washington teen or group of teens ages 13-18 may enter. Teens must be the ones that develop, script, film, and so forth, though anyone can be in the video itself.
  • Anyone appearing in the video is required to fill out a Model Release Form.
  • Your local public library must be a partner, and has to be named on the entry form.
  • Videos can include specific library signs, but must be general enough to be usable nationwide.
  • All audio and artwork must be created by the teens or be in the public domain and must be specified on the entry form.
  • Videos must be between 30 and 90 seconds long.
