The Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) launches the 2018 Teen Video Challenge, a national video competition for teens to get involved with reading and their public library's summer reading program. CSLP is a consortium consisting of public libraries and state library agencies throughout the United States, several islands and territories. The members of this consortium work together to provide high quality summer reading materials for public libraries to use in their summer programs birth through senior citizens.

Teens across the country are invited to create a 30 to 90 second video with their unique interpretation of the 2018 slogan Libraries Rock! in combination with reading and libraries. The idea is to involve teens in summer reading, before and during the summer months, by being part of the process. This is an opportunity for teens to display their creativity and have their ideas heard before a national audience.

Each CSLP member state, island, and territory that chooses to participate in the 2018 Teen Video Challenge will organize and implement their own competition to arrive at their winner. The winning video from each participating state, island, and territory will be named as one of the CSLP 2018 Teen Videos to promote summer reading nationwide. The video creator’s public library will receive gift certificate from Upstart/DEMCO. Teen winners will receive a cash prize. The winners will be announced by CSLP in April 2018.
