Kids. Reading books. Making online videos of said books. All over the country!
Started in 2008, the StoryTubes is a national contest in which elementary aged children create online videos of their favorite book (The 2009 StoryTubes Contest will include teen videos as well.) Library partners from different regions around the country promote the contest and provide staff to rate and review the entries.
Libraries interested in becoming a partner can apply at the StoryTubes info site.
And check out the 2008 winners. Amazing! Hilarious!
