StoryTubes is here! From New York to California, kids in Grades 1-6 are talking up their favorite books. You can too!
Along with your parent or guardian, follow these simple steps:
- Make a 2-minute video about your favorite book;
- Upload the video to YouTube; and
- Come to this StoryTubes website and send in the link to your uploaded YouTube video using the online Contest Entry Form.
Beginning April 1, your video becomes part of a national contest!
Voting mania will then begin and happen each week in May! At the end of each week, one lucky contestant will win $500 in books. Their sponsoring organization (school, library or designated organization for home-schooled youth) will receive $1,000 in books.
