Winter Break Perfect Time for Students to Prepare for Video Contest
TAMPA — With winter break quickly approaching, parents might be wondering how to keep their aspiring young directors occupied. Mom and Dad, tell your high school students about The Second Annual Director’s Chair, a contest in which Florida students submit commercials to promote Ask a Librarian. Ask a Librarian is a free online service that allows the public to chat with a librarian for help with homework or general questions.
Floridians in ninth through 12th grade are invited to submit to YouTube a 30-second video promoting Ask a Librarian by Jan. 17, 2009, for the chance to win a digital video camera, a digital camera or an iPod Shuffle with an iTunes gift card.
After a panel of judges picks the top five videos, it will be up to the public to vote for their favorite video from Jan. 26 to Feb. 7, 2009.
Visit www.askalibrarian.org/thedirectorschair for more information about the contest, including YouTube submission instructions, prizes, official contest rules, release forms and more.
