Spring is a great time for creativity and imagination. The Stanislaus County Library is holding a video contest for all teens, ages 13 to 18. Passionate readers are asked to pilot an original movie trailer of a favorite book. Using their insight on the story, contestants may use still images, video, animation, music and words to inspire viewers to read the book.
Winners will be awarded at a special reception March 15, with all contestants attending. Entries must be submitted before 5 p.m. March 8. For more information, visit your Stanislaus County Library branch or contact the Modesto Library at (209) 558-7817 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Susan Lily, Stanislaus County Library communications, marketing and fund development manager, shared more information on the contest.
The contest also helps convey the message that there are all kinds of things to do at your library, including the virtual branch, www.stanislauslibrary.org.
