2013 Teen Video Contest Winners
In first place we have a book trailer for a great work of classic fantasy by J.R.R. Tolkien: The Silmarillion. Packed with adventure, action, drama, costumes, and sword fights, this video makes me wonder 1) why I haven't read this yet and 2) when is Peter Jackson going to finish up with The Hobbit and start in on this book?
Congratulations to Mary H. & Mathaus S. for making our most popular entry this year. We will soon have a ceremony at the Monroe Library to celebrate and present you with the $150 gift card from Best Buy.
Our second place winner is Escaping the Pages by Elizabeth F. from Camano Island, who you may remember from last year with another terrific stop motion entry Ginger May's Trip to the Library. In this year's video Harry Potter and his friends and enemies escape from their book into our Muggle world. Elizabeth will be awarded a $75 gift card for Best Buy.
The 2013 Teen Tech Month Librarian's Choice Award goes to Mallory P. of Mukileo for Read More Books, starring a very handsome reading cat named Boots. This award also comes with a $75 gift card for Best Buy.
Thank you to everyone who entered. We always enjoy your videos and love having the opportunities to show off what great teen talents are to be found in our community!
All prizes are generously provided by the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation, who are wonderful supporters of our teen programs and events.
