MONROE, La. - The State Library of Louisiana will again participate in the Collaborative Summer Library Program's Teen Video Challenge, a national video competition for teens to get involved with reading and their public libraries' summer reading programs.

Teenagers may enter the competition by creating a public service announcement that encourages teens to read and visit libraries during the summer using the theme "Spark a Reaction." The deadline for video submission is March 10.

The winning video from each participating state will be announced in spring 2014 and used by public libraries nationally to promote summer reading. The creators of the winning state video will be awarded $275 and their associated public library will receive prizes worth $125 from the CSLP and Upstart.

The CSLP is a grassroots consortium of 48 states, Washington, D.C., American Samoa, the Mariana Islands, Cayman Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia that provides children, teens and families with a summer reading program.
