CONCORD (AP) — Teens in New Hampshire have the chance to enter a video contest with the slogan “Spark A Reaction,” to use themes from science to promote the use of public libraries.

The Young Adult Librarians of New Hampshire say the 2014 Teen Video Challenge is part of a national competition that asks teens to create 30- to 90-second public service announcements that promote reading and libraries.

They can incorporate subjects such as astronomy, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, physics and other scientific fields and topics into their videos.

Entries must be designed for use at any library and appropriate for viewing by audiences of all ages. Participants must be 13 to 18 years old and legal residents of New Hampshire. They can work on their own or as a team.

The deadline is Feb. 14, 2014. Videos will be judged on creativity, message clarity and relevance, motivation and inspiration, and overall impact.

New Hampshire’s top entry will be awarded $275, with the winner’s public library receiving $125.
