For the past two years Wisconsin residents have turned to AskAway-a free online information service staffed by professional librarians 24 hours a day, seven days a week-for reliable answers to all sorts of questions. Now AskAway is encouraging young adult residents to share their positive experiences by creating and posting short videos as a part of the “I Love AskAway” YouTube video contest for teens. Click and scroll here for detailed entry instructions.
Entries should consist of an original video that depicts the AskAway chat service available to all state residents at the Milwaukee Public Library. Videos should be between 30 to 60 seconds long (longer videos may be edited), and must either be uploaded to YouTube or submitted on DVD or CD-ROM by July 31, 2008.
First prize is a $150 Best Buy gift certificate and second prize is a
$75 Best Buy gift certificate. Contest winners will be announced Sept.
