The Young Adult Library Services Association* sponsored a teen video contest in conjunction with Teen Tech Week . YALSA promotes Tech Week to give libraries the opportunity to showcase digital resources available to teens to help them succeed in school and prepare for college and 21st century careers. The theme this year was “Be the Source of Change” to encourage teens to take advantage of digital resources to make a positive change in their life and community.
Teen videographers from QCA libraries met at the Putnam Museum for the Premiere Screening Party on March 7th to view videos entered in the contest. Makenzie’s video, “The Truth About Cell Phones”, won the Audience Choice Award.
