Teen programs get creative

Teen YouTube Challenge 2015Ask us for details on how to enter the Teen Short Film Contest! Videos are due March 3, and all entries will be shown at a free Premiere Party on March 12.  The contest is open to ages 13 to 19. The contest is sponsored by the Putnam Museum. 

A free teen movie set against a college-wide singing contest wraps up the month at 2:00 pm on Saturday, Feb. 28. The 2012 movie carries a PG-13 rating, and is very loosely adapted from Pitch Perfect: The Quest for Collegiate A Cappella Glory, by Mickey Rapkin. Only ages 13 and up will be admitted to the free showing.
