Teen Video Challenge

Rhode Island teenagers are invited to create a video promoting Summer Reading at the library and the successful winning entry will win $150 and their local public library will receive prizes worth at least $50 from CSLP and Upstart!

A little bit of creativity in a short public service announcement could make you the Teen Video Challenge Winner! The video produced by a Rhode Island student or group of students that best demonstrates use of their local public libraries, uses the theme "Unmask" and promotes reading all summer long will take away the contest prize. The top five videos will be featured on the OLIS website and the winning video will be featured throughout 2015 as the official commercial for Rhode Island's Summer Reading Program.
