The State Library of Louisiana is proud to announce Louisiana’s winners of the 2016 Teen Video Challenge hosted by the Collaborative Summer Library Program. Kieran Pate, Collin Serigne, Mason Dufrene, and Joey Gaudet, representing the Lafourche Public Library, created Get in the Game, Read!—a short video about the impact that libraries and books can have on learning new skills, including sports.
“I want to congratulate our winners from Louisiana,” said Lieutenant Governor Nungesser. “I want to commend them for their hard work, and I truly admire their dedication to libraries and the necessary services they provide to the residents of Louisiana.”
The annual national competition aims to encourage teens to read and participate in their public libraries' summer reading programs. A winning video was selected from each of the 25 participating states, and all winning groups receive $150 from CSLP. The winning videos are used to promote summer reading programs in public libraries nationwide.
“By participating, teens are sending a clear message that public libraries are important to them,” says State Librarian Rebecca Hamilton.
