Since 2011, the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP), working with member states, has been soliciting amateur videos produced by teenagers, to serve as the official CSLP sanctioned summer reading teen videos. The purpose of the teen video contest is to give teens the opportunity to make videos that encourage the use of public libraries and promote reading all summer long.
Teens who create a video promoting summer reading at the public library, including their interpretation of the 2015 CSLP teen slogan, "Unmask," can win $150, and their library will receive prizes worth at least $50 from CSLP and Upstart. Videos can be created individually or as a team. The winning video from Florida will become one of the official Teen Public Service Announcements for the National 2015 CSLP Summer Reading Program.
