Clearwater libraries to host Teen Talent Contest Online | Arts & Culture
Clearwater, Florida -- This summer, Clearwater Public Libraries will host "That Thing I Can Do," a talent contest for teens that will be conducted completely online.
From April 29 until midnight June 10, Clearwater libraries will accept entries. Students from grades six through 12 can create up to 5-minute videos of their particular talent, post the video on YouTube, then register for the contest.
Library staff will review the video named in each registration for length and appropriateness, and upon acceptance, send confirmation to the contestant, and post links to each contestant's video on the library's website.
Contestants can then encourage friends and family to view their videos on the Clearwater website and solicit "Like" votes.
The public may also review the videos and vote on the talent of their choice with "Like" votes. "Like" votes will be tallied, and contestants whose videos have the most "Likes" by close of business, Thursday, July 1 will be declared winners and will be notified. Gift cards will be awarded as prizes.
Talent can include anything from traditional singing, dancing, playing musical instruments, or performing magic tricks to display of any other unusual stunts or abilities, within reason.
Entry forms and officials rules can be obtained at any Clearwater Public Library Branch or requested online at firstname.lastname@example.org.
