“Through Our Eyes” Creative Project

This part of the Challenge begins on June 21. A meeting will be held for participants in the library to discuss the project on June 21.

The Project:

Teens must create a video or slide show of their favorite place or thing to do in San Benito County. Teens who register receive a free book prize.

The video/slide show cannot exceed one-and-a-half minutes in length.

Participants will be split up into three competing age groups:

  • 12-13 years old
  • 14-15 years old
  • 16-18 years old

A judging panel will vote for winning videos from each age group. Winners will each receive a $50 Amazon gift card

One of the winners will have the chance to have their work featured on the Discover San Benito County website
