Now summarize it 90 seconds.
Now ad dialogue, costumes, sounds and lighting.
This is the challenge faced by the hundreds of participants in the 90-Second Newbery contest. Each year, youth all over the country are encouraged to take one Newbery winner and convert it into a 90-second video clip. Since it’s inception three years ago, the program has grown immensely. Founder James Kennedy, author of The Order of Odd-Fish, along with sponsor KidLitFoundation now hold six screenings at various locations across the country.
Writers & Books in collaboration with RCTV had three winners in the contest this year. Each summer our two organizations come together to host a youth workshop. Below are links to the fruits of this collaboration via James Kennedy’s website.
Congratulations to all the finalists, especially our home town victors!
