Teens between the ages of 13-18 are invited to create a Public Service Announcement video promoting the Teen Summer Reading Program for 2014, “Spark A Reaction.” Each participating state will have one winning video, and the winners will receive $275.00, and the winner’s library will receive $125.00 in products. If you are interested in creating a short video to enter, please visit the site below, and/or come and talk to Helen in the children’s room.
For the last five years, the University of Texas college directory webpage has been an excellent resource for a complete listing of accredited colleges and universities. Even Massachusetts high school students and their families use the webpage to find and research institutions in which they may be interested.
The college database is an updated, non-commercial directory of all large universities, small colleges, community colleges and trade schools nationwide. In addition to using the most complete and current data available, they’ve also incorporated Google maps and highlighted key data points for each college, including tuition rate, enrollment, and institution type – vital decision-making factors for potential students.
