Do you know any teens that make their own music? Perhaps they like to sing or have their own band? Now is the time to let them shine! Give teens an opportunity to showcase their talent in YALSA’s Teen Tech Week Promotional Song Contest.
The purpose of the contest is for teens to create a song that promotes libraries and their many technology resources to teens. Judges will be looking for content that promotes library technology and Teen Tech Week, well-written and audible lyrics, creative approach, and clear-sounding production quality.
Teens may begin working on the contest immediately. Every entry will be acknowledged with a certificate. Each of the five finalists will receive a free book and the winner(s) will also receive a $50 gift certificate from a major bookstore, and will be interviewed for a YALS article and press release.
Teen Tech Week will be held during March 2 – 8, 2008. All contest materials are due on March 8, 2008 at midnight.
