Teens who enter the Quad-City-wide Teen YouTube Video Challenge could see their work on the big screen at the Putnam Museum, Davenport.
The Rock Island Public Library's Teen YouTube Video Challenge night will be 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday at the Downtown Library, helps support the creative process by supplying props, cameras, laptop computers, help with editing and uploading, and entry details to teens who want to enter a three-to-five-minute video.
The event is free and does not require registration.
The Teen YouTube Challenge is held annually during Teen Tech Week, which is March 4-8. This year's theme is "Libraries Are for Creating," and the grand prize is $100. The contest is open to ages 11 to 19.
Entries will be shown at the free premiere party March 8 on the giant screen at the Putnam. Participants and their families can attend the event, which features pizza, the videos and announcement of winners. Entrants should prepare to wear their "red carpet" clothing and answer questions from the press.
