The Teen Video Challenge is an annual CSLP-sponsored competition for teens to create videos that promote reading, libraries, and the CSLP theme, which in 2015 is Unmask! One winning video created by a teen or group of teens is selected as the Ohio winner and shared with libraries across the state and nationwide. The winning teen or group of teens is awarded $150 plus an award valued at $50 for the winner’s local public library.
The 2015 Ohio winner is “Groovy Groo and the Book Muncher” created by students at West Branch High School to benefit the Sebring Branch of the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County. Check out all the 2015 state winners on the CSLP website.
The 2014 Ohio winner, “Super Readers“, was created by Port Clinton High School Digital Media students to benefit the Ida Rupp Public Library. 2014 Ohio runners-up include “Knowledge is Power“, produced by teens at the Stark County District Library, Plain Branch, and “Libraries Spark Reactions“, produced by teens at the Mercer County District Public Library. These videos promoted the “Unmask!” theme.
The 2013 Ohio winner, “Beneath the Surface“, was created by teens at the Tiffin-Seneca Public Library TAB. Teens around the country were challenged to create videos promoting the “Beneath the Surface” theme.
