Take a Shot film competition is back! This year the contest, aimed at middle and high-schoolers, asks teens about something in Pittsburgh that has changed the world or how they can change the world. PopCity announced that the contest has returned for its second year, this time with $10,000 dollars to award to winning films.
Encourage your teen patrons to pick up a video or Flip camera and start filming! Not only did Pittsburgh change the world with the polio vaccine, but it also produced the country's library champion, Andrew Carnegie (what a great film topic!).
Not only are there video contest opportunities for teens, but there is a great one for librarians!
How are YOU handling the digital lives of tweens and teens at your library? The 2012 President's program at ALA Annual is a joint program between ALSC and YALSA, and is focused on the use of technology by teens and tweens. Create a short video about a program or experience with teens and technology. All entrants will be eligible for a $100 Amazon gift card and the winning videos will be shown at 2012 ALA Annual.
