Teen Read Week 2010: Video Contest Winners!

Oscar winners beware – we have some stiff competition here in Virginia! The results are finally in from our second Teen Video Contest, where teens created video trailers for their favorite books in celebration of Teen Read Week. From Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief and Angie Sage’s Magyk, to Cracker by Cynthia Kadohata, historical fiction and fantasy ruled the day. Our local teens made show-stopping trailers that are guaranteed to put them on track to the Academy Awards. Each video was creative and exciting, demonstrating that teen books are alive and well at the CRRL. Great job to all the filmmakers and actors! 

And now, here are the winners ....
 
In first place is Magyk. Congratulations!
 
In second place, The Book Thief -  Group 1. Creators: LaShaad H., Haley B., Carrington B., Alex L., Megan D., Lidia C., Emmanuel V., and Christian D.
 
And in third place, The Book Thief.
 
That’s it for this year’s Teen Read Week! To pick up a copy of these awesome teen books, click on the links above or search our online catalog.

Congratulations once again to all of our teens and happy reading!
