Imaginator WheelWhy:

Aside from the $275 the winning team gets and the $125 in prizes the winning library gets, YALS (the Young Adult Librarians of NH) and the national Collaborative Summer Library Program want to encourage you to develop your video skills, have fun and encourage others to use your library all summer long. We created this contest for teens to create videos for teens.
