Hello all! Earlier this week, I sent the message below announcing the 2012 Teen Summer Reading Video Challenge. I've had some great questions since then, so I wanted to send you more information. Please let me know if there's anything else you'd like to know.

√ CSLP Video Submission Criteria

        The video will include the teen's interpretation of the 2012 CSLP teen slogan "Own the Night" and promote reading and libraries.

        The video has a clear message and is delivered in a creative way.

        The video must be usable to promote summer reading at any public library nationwide: the promotion of a specific library is not acceptable, the video should not state "visit the ABC Public Library" but it is OK for the signage of a public library to appear in the video.

        The video must be designed for use at any library and be appropriate for viewing by audiences of all ages.

        All materials used must be created by the teen(s), or be in the public domain.

        The length of the video must be at least 30 seconds long and no longer than 90 seconds.

        The video entry form must have the name of a CSLP member library.

        All entries must include signed Model Release form(s).

        Once the winning video is determined, the state member will contact the winner and obtain a DVD of the winning video.

As the criteria above states, videos should feature teen interpretations of the 2012 teen SRP slogan "Own the Night" and promote reading and libraries in general rather than specific library programs. Videos should definitely focus on teen programs over programs for adults and kids. Here's the link to last year's winners if you want some shining examples: http://www.cslpreads.org/winners.html

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.

 For more information contact one of your CSLP representatives:
