The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) has announced the winners of the 2015 Teen Video Challenge, a national competition for teens to get involved with reading and their public library's summer reading program. This competition is in its fifth year of encouraging teens to get involved with promoting summer reading and public libraries with a focus on the CSLP 2015 slogan, “Unmask.” Each participating state selected one winning video to be named the official CSLP Teen Video Challenge state winner.
In Colorado, teens from across the state submitted excellent videos to the contest. It was challenging to select a winner, but the selection panel—consisting of CO public librarians and staff from Rocky Mountain PBS—chose a video by a team of teens at the Rock Canyon High School in Highlands Ranch and patrons of Douglas County Libraries, led by student Daniel Lindeen, entitled “Stolen Knowledge.”
The selection panel also chose 5 videos that are this year’s honorable mentions, representing Douglas County Libraries, Denver Public Library, and Poudre River Public Library District. Please watch these six creative videos at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8riLQL7j5vzBAKpjWO_pW3KYI7xowszI. Congratulations to all of Colorado’s teens that participated in the contest and shared their skills and creativity.
