StoryTubes for TTW

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:

 

  1. Make a 2-minute video about your favorite book;
  2. Upload the video to YouTube; and
  3. 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.

Four  Video Categories:

Hair-Raising Tales
From or For the Heart
Of Heroes and Heroines
Facts, Fads and Phenoms

  1. In order to make a 2 minute video, the young person would need to
    a) read the book !
    and
    b) spend time planning, organizing, and actually creating the video.

    These ARE literary skills…

    I think it’s a great idea !
