School Library Media Month Video Contest

From ALA: SLM Video Contest

School librarians are encouraged to submit videos to the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) detailing how they help their school community "thrive." This is an opportunity for school librarians to be creative and share why they are essential to their school community. The winning video will be featured on the AASL Web site, AASL social networking platforms, and possible feature and recognition at AASL conferences. Entries will be vetted by AASL and the top three will be judged by the entire AASL member community starting March 8, 2010.

Suggested focus
AASL encourages creativity. Entries may include an interview with members of a school community, a typical day in the life of a school librarian, or a short skit on why school librarians are essential to a school community.

Submission process
Entries should be submitted by email to AASL by March 1, 2010 at 4:30 p.m. CST. Please include your AASL membership ID with your submission. All videos must be accompanied by a signed video/photo release form from each person featured in the video. Videos should be no more than 3 minutes. Only WMV, RealVideo and QuickTime formatted files will be accepted.

Additional Rules
This contest is open to AASL members only. All entries over 3 minutes will be disqualified.

The winner will receive district access to all L4L webinars and an AASL prize package including Standards for the 21st-Century Learner in Action, Empowering Learners: Guidelines for School Library Media Programs; and the forthcoming Planning Guide for Empowering Learners.
