Denver Public Library YouTube Contest

Denver Public Library YouTube Contest

Some things to note:

Use of YouTube is not only encouraged by DPL but the site is used as an extension of the library’s presence within its community of teens

The same goes for the library’s Teen MySpace page at — where the videos that meet contest criteria will be highlighted!

On so many levels, this gets the library “out there” and in the minds of young people. They’ll market the content, the MySpace page and more by word of mouth.

How open, participatory and decentralized is this? Wowza!

(Thanks to Michael Sauers for the heads up via his most cool Flickr stream.)
