You Belong @ Your School Library Student Video Contest
Video contest: The winners of the You Belong @ Your School Library Student Video Contest, sponsored by the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) in collaboration with SchoolTube and Mackin, have been announced. Students attending a school with a school librarian were asked to submit a mostly live-action video running under three minutes that explained why the school library was the place to be. Three winners were chosen by a panel of judges from the 42 entries submitted, and they each received a $100 Amazon.com gift card and $500 worth of books from Mackin. In the elementary school category, Why We Love the Library! (Town School for Boys, San Francisco, CA) took home the award. Top Ten Tips for Library Fun (Henry F. Byrd Middle School, Richmond, VA) nabbed the prize in the middle school level, while http://www.schooltube.com/video/0528c6bfe0d840508d48/Top%20Ten%20Tips%20for%20Library%20Fun (White Plains High School, Anniston, AL) was the high school winner.
