In honor of YALSA’s Teen Tech Week, the Scott County Libraries Together – Teen Service Division is hosting the 5th Annual Teen YouTube Video Contest!
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 the Young Adult Librarian at your home library or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The YouTube Contest Viewing Premiere will take place on a date and location TBD in March. Stay tuned to the blog for further details.
