Library’s Teen Video Challenge winners announced

The State Library of Louisiana announced Louisiana’s winners of the 2016 Teen Video Challenge hosted by the Collaborative Summer Library Program.

Kieran Pate, Collin Serigne, Mason Dufrene, and Joey Gaudet, representing the Lafourche Public Library, created Get in the Game, Read! — a short video about the impact that libraries and books can have on learning new skills, including sports.

The annual national competition aims to encourage teens to read and participate in their public libraries' summer reading programs.A winning video was selected from each of the 25 participating states, and all winning groups receive $150 from CSLP.

The winning videos are used to promote summer reading programs in public libraries nationwide.

“By participating, teens are sending a clear message that public libraries are important to them,” says State Librarian Rebecca Hamilton.
