The Collaborative Summer Library Program has announced the winners of the 2017 Teen Video Challenge!
The Teen Video Challenge encouraged teens to create short public service announcements that promote reading and library use over the summer to other teens. The 2017 theme was "Build a Better World" and fourteen states participated in the contest this year. The winning videos illustrate the diversity of our nation and of the teens that created them.
