“We are excited to announce that there will be three winners for this year’s contest.

AWE, Inc. has announced the 2014 Video Contest for Public Libraries. For this contest, public libraries are invited to create a video for the chance to win an Early Literacy Station™ or AfterSchool Edge™ digital learning solution from AWE.

The submission period is effective now through June 1, 2014.

In the videos, public libraries are invited to talk about their library and how AWE’s Early Literacy Station computers benefit the library and the children in their community. Libraries that don’t yet have an Early Literacy Station can also submit a video for the chance to win one.

“We are excited to announce that there will be three winners for this year’s contest,” said Michael Mok, VP of US Sales. "It’s very exciting to see the passion and creativity displayed by public libraries in the videos.”

The videos should be no longer than 90 seconds and submissions are due by June 1, 2014. To submit a video, libraries should simply upload the video to YouTube and complete the submission form on AWE’s website:

The annual video contest is open to customers and non-customers alike. All of the submissions from past years are available for viewing here: 2012 and 2013.

The three winners will be announced at ALA Annual in Las Vegas, Nev., at the end of June.

The Early Literacy Station is found in 40% of public library systems. It offers young learners a safe, all-in-one computer resource that does not require an Internet connection to operate. The software content spans all curriculum areas (reading, language arts, math, science, STEM, social studies, writing, graphic arts, typing, music, and more) and is correlated to Common Core standards. It also features a host of administrative features including timed sessions and usage tracking.
