Florida Library Youth Program

2018 Teen Video Challenge

In the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) teen video challenge, teens make videos to: 

  • Encourage others to use public libraries
  • Promote reading all summer long

This year’s slogan is Libraries Rock!

Winning videos from all participating states will become the official Teen Public Service Announcements for the National CSLP Summer Reading Program. 

You can check out Florida's 2017 winner and view other video entries from last year's contest. 

Entry Form and Model Release

Sharing 2018 Summer Activities

We're looking for short, fun instructional videos showcasing the "Libraries Rock" theme through songs, crafts, booktalks or activities. 

We'd like to invite you to send us a video: 

  • Between two and five minutes long
  • In MP4 format
  • Using 720p or higher resolution
  • Featuring a favorite tune, activity teens enjoy or a craft kids love

If you sing a song in your video, please send us the lyrics to help us with closed captioning. 

According to the Music Library Association in regard to the Copyright Law:

"Instructional broadcasts. Section 110(2) provides an exemption for instructional broadcasting of non-dramatic works only. The performance must be 'a regular part of the systematic instructional activities of a governmental body or a nonprofit educational institution' and it must be 'directly related and of material assistance to the teaching content' of the program."  

That means it is acceptable to use music as an instructional tool for the 2018 summer workshop videos.

All videos need to be uploaded to BLD's Dropbox account, including videos posted on YouTube or Instagram. 

Please send all video upload requests to Jana Fine at

We'll place the videos we receive into groups based on the 2018 CSLP Manual chapter headings. Then we'll post each group of videos on YouTube for you to view in preparation for the 2018 Summer Library Program.
