CSLP’s 2019 Teen Video Challenge
Looking for an easy teen program and a great opportunity to showcase your talent?
The 2019 TVC has been streamlined to help make participating in this contest easier than ever!
Instead of state winners, there will be 5 national winners. Just have your teens submit a link to their video. The program will accept submissions June 1-Aug 2, 2019, so that the program can be incorporated into summer programs (it’s still a great opportunity to partner with schools with video production classes or clubs; students can produce the videos as a class project and submit them in June!). Videos will be limited to 60 seconds, making this a much more doable project for small teams. Permission and model release forms will only be required from the winning entries (completing the forms is a requirement to receive prizes and acknowledgement). The TVC Ad-Hoc Committee will convene a judging panel from CSLP partners and members. Video uploads will not be limited to YouTube and Vimeo; rather, teens can upload to the social media outlet of their choice!

For New Hampshire students who are looking to stay in state I thought you might be interested in:
