Hello all,

It's time to launch the 2012 Teen Summer Reading Video Challenge. If you remember, last year was the first year of the contest and it was the brain child of folks at the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP). Each participating state runs the contest locally, winners are selected for each state, and are featured on the cslpreads.org website. Oregon teens are encouraged to create and submit 30-90 second PSAs promoting the summer reading program. The deadline for submissions is Saturday, March 3. All submissions will be posted to a YouTube channel which will be open for users to vote for their favorite videos by "Liking" them. The final winner will be selected by a panel of judges from OYAN. I've attached Oregon's entry form which includes contest rules, and I encourage you to check out the contest resources on the CSLP website<http://cslpreads.org/programs/young-adult-program/2012-teen-video-challenge.html>. I've also included some suggestions below about implementing the contest at your school or library. Please let me know if you have any questions. Note that while submitted videos must be posted online, paper forms need to be signed and submitted to me.

Video Contest Programming

 *   Plan a video making workshop using free video editing software like Windows Live Movie Maker.
 *   Invite folks from local cable access or film centers to teach a movie making workshop and/or provide equipment.
 *   Try animation workshops using Machinima<http://www.machinima.org/machinima-faq.html> or stop motion animation.
 *   While the library is closed, make the space available for movie makers. Provide cardboard, markers and crayons to create set pieces.

 *   Partner with a school or library. Many schools have media labs and may include PSAs as part of their curriculum.
 *   Partner with local youth groups like 4H Tech Wizards<http://extension.oregonstate.edu/metro4h/techwizards>.

 *   Consider tying the contest into Teen Tech Week (March 6-12). You could screen submissions at a celebration.

 *   Consider offering prizes for winners and runners up you select locally, but be sure that ALL submissions are sent to me for the state-wide contest.

 All Oregon public, volunteer, and tribal libraries are members of the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP), and receive a free summer reading manual.  To get the most out of your membership, create an account on the CSLP website (http://www.cslpreads.org/) and you will be able to access additional summer reading resources. CSLP membership dues and manual fees are paid for by the State Library with LSTA funds. Summer reading manuals are distributed by OLA's Children's Services Division, and both CSD and OYAN members represent you on CSLP committees and at the CSLP annual meeting.
