    Thanks for your comments. We are doing it again this year! Stay tuned to the blog for more upcoming details. It will be a bit different than years past but here is the info we have so far: YouTube Contest presented by Libraries Together – Entries due Saturday, February 25th by 5:30 p.m.

    Have you ever wanted to make movies? Well now is your chance. We will be having a YouTube contest for area teens. This year we have decided to let you or your team choose your own theme. Below is a list of suggestions, but feel free to make the movie you want to make!

    * Live action video games, such as a reenactment of an epic Minecraft session.
    * Infomercials for your favorite book, library program, or fictional product.
    * A flashmob.
    * Incorporate Skype or twitter interview with your favorite author.
    * Reinterpret classic literature with a healthy dose of teen angst.

    Videos need to be shorter than 5 minutes, and be posted to YouTube. You can then email your entry’s URL and your contact information to your home library’s teen librarian or cvogt@davenportlibrary.com.

    The YouTube Contest Viewing Premiere will take place on a date and location TBD in March.
