StoryTubes is Coming!

Have you seen/heard about this contest?
Beginning April 1st, kids across the country (grades 1-6) will be making and posting videos to YouTube about their favorite books. Coming in at 2 minutes or shorter, kids can enter their video in the StoryTubes contest by filling out an entry from and selecting a category for their book:
  • Hair-Raising Tales
  • From or For the Heart
  • Of Heroes and Heroines
  • Facts, Fads and Phenoms

Voting on videos will occur each week in May when the top ten videos in each category will be featured. At the end of each week, one contestant will win $500 in books. The winner's sponsoring organization (school, library or designated organization for home-schooled youth) will receive $1,000 in books. Book prizes are sponsored by publishers Simon & Schuster, Scholastic, Eaglemont Press, DK Publishing, Charlesbridge Publishing and Shenanigan Books.

Sounds like fun, doesn't it? Get over to StoryTubes now to learn more.
