Summer Reading at SC Libraries: Teen Video Challenge

A program that entices children and young adults to read throughout the summer in order to keep up the skills they learned during the school year, and encourages them to become lifelong library users.

CSLP's 2019 Teen Video Challenge

Looking for an easy program to share with your teens? The 2019 TVC has been streamlined to help make participating in this contest easier than ever!

  • Instead of state winners, there will be 5 national winners. Just have your teens submit a link to their video.
  • Permission and model release forms will only be required from the winning entries (completing the forms is a requirement to receive prizes and acknowledgement).
  • The TVC Ad-Hoc Committee will convene a judging panel from CSLP partners and members.
  • Video uploads will not be limited to YouTube and Vimeo; rather, teens can upload to the social media outlet of their choice.

How to Enter

The program will accept submissions June 1-Aug 2, 2019, so that the program can be incorporated into summer programs (it’s still a great opportunity to partner with schools with video production classes or clubs; students can produce the videos as a class project and submit them in June!)

Video Submission Criteria:

All videos must:
• Be limited to 60 seconds.
• Promote the idea of using public libraries and reading.
• Be appropriate for viewing by audiences of all ages.

 

The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) is a grassroots consortium of states and member affiliates working together to provide high-quality summer reading program materials for public libraries. http://www.cslpreads.org.

 

Terms and Conditions

All audio and artwork must be created by the entrant or be in the public domain and must be specified as such on the entry form. CSLP (and all CSLP member affiliates) have permission to use the “2019 Teen Video Challenge” submissions, including all work created and all intellectual property embodied therein, as per the Contest Release form.
