You can fly solo or work with up to five other teens, videos need to be 5 minutes or less, and they MUST be uploaded to the QC Libraries YouTube group during Teen Tech Week which runs March 7-13th.

Choose a theme and run with it.  Also new for this year:  ALL entries must be submitted to the QC Libraries YouTube group.  So, your videos must comply with YouTube’s terms of use in order to be shown on the IMAX screen at the red carpet premiere party.  Party?
