The winners of the 2016 Collaborative Summer Library Program Teen Video Challenge were affiliated with the Blackstone Library in Branford. Congratulations to Natalie Leonffu, Emma Bender, Kailei Wedge, Olivia Campbell, Rebecca DeMatteo, Lia Coppola and Dylan Campos, students at New Haven’s Betsy Ross Magnet School.
The group of middle school students are interested in film-making and production. They worked with their video production teacher, Matt Kelsey, to create a video submission for the contest. They filmed at the Blackstone Library, using the library's video camera and equipment and created a fantastic video, encouraging kids to "Get in the Game and Read!"
