Voting time in the StoryTubes video contest

Congratulations to the seven children in New York State who submitted videos about their favorite books to the nationwide StoryTubes video contest.

All the New York State entries have been posted to the NYS Summer Reading Program web site.

To enter the contest, children in grades 1 to 6 made short videos about their favorite books. And they’re delightful to watch!

All of the entries from around the country can be viewed at the StoryTubes site. During May, finalists will be selected the following categories and everyone will be able to vote.

  • May 5 – May 11, 2008 – Hair-Raising Tales
  • May 12 – May 18, 2008 – From or For the Heart
  • May 19 – May 25, 2008 – Of Heroes and Heroines
  • May 26 – June 1, 2008 – Facts, Fads and Phenoms

The StoryTubes project was created by the folks at Gail Borden Public Library in Elgin IL. Staff of the Children’s Services department at Middle Country Public Library in Centereach & Selden NY were the coordinators for the Northeast region.

    What a great idea! Bummer my kids can’t vote. You Tube is blocked. Maybe they will use Teacher Tube next year?

    Hi Krissy, Using TeacherTube would be a good idea. Not sure how they’re running the contest. It might be that the kids are uploading their videos themselves, so they might not be able to use TeacherTube?
