Do you have a passion for reading or libraries? Do you want to share your video or performative skills with teens across the country? The Collaborative Summer Library Program Teen Video Challenge is for you!

Five winners will be chosen and will receive: a $200 cash prize, and $50 worth of summer reading materials for their library!

The Teen Video Challenge is an annual video contest and is open to all teens. The challenge is for teens to create a public services announcement-type video that shows their unique interpretation of the 2020 CSLP slogan “Imagine Your Story.” Videos are to be no longer than 60 seconds and should promote libraries and reading.

Videos will be accepted June 1 through August 7, 2020
