The Washington State Library and the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) have launched the 2015 Teen Video Challenge, a national video competition for teens to get involved with reading and their public library’s summer reading program.
Teens are invited to create a 30 to 90 second video with their unique interpretation of the 2015 teen slogan “Unmask” in combination with reading and libraries. The idea is to involve teens in summer reading, before and during the summer months, by being part of the process. This is an opportunity for teens to showcase their creativity and have their ideas heard before a national audience. The winning video will be named one of the CSLP 2015 Teen Videos to promote summer reading nationwide.
$150 will be awarded to the creators of the winning state video and their associated public library will receive prizes worth at least $50 from CSLP and Demco/Upstart. Winners will be announced by CSLP in April 2015.

Several Garfield HS students got together, read Moby Dick, and put together this video. Sparks Notes provided the script, but the teens provided the puppets, the cutouts, and the dramatic voices. So cool!
