We’re all set for another smashing video contest screening event at the Putnam Museum’s IMAX Theatre this Thursday night. All are welcome to attend this spectacular teen program! The pre-party with pizza and refreshments will begin at 6pm. Just prior to 7:00, the participants will walk the red carpet into the theatre just in time for the 7:00 screening debut of their videos.

Special thanks to the Putnam Museum & IMAX Theatre for donating the use of their space for our 4th Annual Teen YouTube Video Contest Screening Event, and to Papa John’s and Pizza Hut (both on Locust St. in Davenport) for their pizza donations this year.
