The Young Adult Literature Conference, now known as the Colorado Teen Literature Conference, was initiated in 1988 by the Jefferson County Library Foundation, and Metropolitan State College at Denver English Department faculty as an outreach to teachers and library professionals who were concerned about teen literacy. Early sponsors of the conference were Metropolitan State College at Denver and University of Colorado Denver School of Education and Human Development.
Did you know this? I only found this out a year ago. I think it’s a great idea to celebrate the Dark Knight. Why? Because he tends to be children’s and adults’ favorite superhero. Heck, some people end up loving Batman’s archrivals more than other superheros, like the Joker, Harley Quinn, and the Riddler to name a few. When Batman vs. Superman came out in movie theaters, I knew more people who wanted Batman to win over Superman. And did he?
Saturdays in ideaLAB are always fun, but teens really mixed it up today with a Vine-off. The rules were simple: Make the best 6 second video and win small!
The winners were:
1. Sophie, The life in the library
2. Ethan, Software make hardware happen
3. Mo, Addiction
Honorable mentions, affirming nods, and solid pats on the back go to Rhylie and Thane (though Thane is staff, so...)
