Calling all 12-18 year olds: take the TeenTube Challenge!

When we read all the information Cathy Plichta with the Norwood Branch Library sent us about the upcoming TeenTube Challenge, our jaws dropped and our eyes popped! This summer, for the first time, any Norwood teen between the ages of 12 and 18 has a golden opportunity to learn how to make a short film under the guidance of the library, WCET, and Norwood Community Television. Cathy tells us all the equipment and training will be provided free of charge starting June 13. And get this: teens can burn their video or audio podcast onto a DVD or CD and turn it into their local library to enter a contest, and THEN attend the July 12 TeenTube Premiere Party on Fountain Square when the winners will be announced. First prize is a $100 gift card to Target, second prize is a $75 gift card to Target, and third prize is a $50 gift card to Target, plus the winning videos will run on the big screen for all the partygoers to see - what a thrill!
