Library video contest for Elgin (IL) residents

The folks at Gail Borden Public Library (Elgin, IL) have been posting videos on YouTube for a couple months. Now they’ve announced a video contest for patrons, called Storypalooza:

This January and February … we’re asking everybody in our library community to pick up their cameras and join the visual storytelling fun. People of all ages are invited to upload a 4-minute (or shorter) video to YouTube. Then send a link to us, for entry into one of two categories: “My Favorite Book” … or “Community Favorites” … . Videos can be funny, poignant, clever or cool, and they must be library-appropriate.

A bank is sponsoring prizes for Storypalooza. Local newspaper coverage here.
