Are you a teen who likes making videos and winning prizes? Oh man, I'm so glad you're reading this because the Santa Clara County Library District is holding a video contest for you!

Make a 30 to 90 second video promoting Summer Reading with 2014’s theme of “Spark a Reaction!” and you could win a $100 gift card from your local library. Then we'll submit your video to the state contest and you could win $275 from the Collaborative Summer Library Program.

This entry form and a model release form for anyone in your video must be submitted to your library by February 1st. No printer? Pick up a paper form at your library.

Good luck and happy filming!
