New York State Judging
The New York State winner for the 2014 Teen Video Challenge was selected through a two-step process. In the first round of judging, 22 New York State public librarians narrowed the 18 entrants down to 3 finalists. The second panel of 4 media professionals and celebrity judges chose “Reading Makes Your Imagination Shine” as this year’s winner.
The media professionals and celebrity judging panel:
- Jeffrey W. Cannell – Deputy Commissioner for Cultural Education for New York State
- Jackson Murphy – film critic for YNN television
- Dan Judson – Filmmaker/Producer Digital Foundry
- Karen Balsen – New York State Library, Library Development Specialist, Youth & System Services
The winning video was chosen for its creative and entertaining interpretation of this year’s slogan. Its strong message that teens can find a variety of resources and have fun at the library was a winning combination!
