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.
EPIC, the teen advisory board for the SM Energy ideaLAB, is looking for a logo to use on shirts and all kinds of other things. And they know Denver teens are creative and make amazing things. So they're asking for your help! And we're also willing to bribe you...
The results are in! The Summer of Making was a success and the winners have been chosen!

Teens from around Denver created and concocted amazing projects including graphic arts, computer games, robotics, textiles, videos, and games.
Congratulations on winning the Summer of Making Contest: Owen, Micaiah, and Alex!
Chapter 1: What Happened?
Everybody looks alright on the outside but if you were to look inside, They Wouldn't be.
Everybody thinks that if they put a fake smile on, No one will notice. But I do, I see right through them.
My name is Dani and this is my veiw on life.
A couple of years ago in december I was trying to find myself in this great big world.
I was so lost that I would do anything just to feel loved but That all changed last week.
You see I was just walking along the road when I saw a bright light.

Why do brothers have to be so annoying. My only birthday vacation this summer,and Ben has to take his sweet time. Someone to complain to. Hmmm maybe my best friend Lily. I pull out my phone and text her.

Expression. It's a word everyone holds on to. Expression is in the same catagory as family, love, him, her, all those things we want to hang on to. And it's something I crave everyday, wanting to have it for every breath I take in my life. I simple can not life with out self expression.
