NEW Student-Created Content

The "It's Your Cause" Video Challenge (IYC) is in full swing! We have just added 24 new student-created videos to the database. Teens from The Shelton School, Texas, and Lafayette Jr. Sr. High School, New York, created the videos for Health and Language Arts class projects. Browse the video archive page to see these new contributions. Topics range from drugs and alcohol to dealing with your parents and from volunteering and activism to and critical writing skills.

We've also added new personal stories submitted to the Personal Story Project. Find new stories by teens on Death, Drug and Alcohol Abuse In Your Family, Leadership, Recovering From an Eating Disorder, and Self-Esteem and Confidence in the personal story archive.

The SLJ Teen Newsletter just profiled the IYC Video Challenge. So what are you waiting for⎯your teens could become published authors by contributing a video PSA or personal story. These projects are perfect for your teen advisory board or health, language arts, or science class. For more information, visit the Librarian/Educator Resources for contest rules and prizes.

Librarians saying

"This site has an incredible amount of information available on health and mental health topics for teens, parents, and teachers. It is intuitive and the publisher is clearly committed to updating the site on a regular basis to keep it current and relevant. With all of the issues facing young adults today, parents, teachers, and librarians will be glad to have a reliable and informative place to send students with their health and social concerns. This site is highly recommended for junior high, high school, and public libraries."

Library Spotlight

Students from Lafayette Junior Senior High School produced 17 of the new student-created videos recently added to Teen Health & Wellness. Library Media Specialist Marcie Mann and health teacher partner Heather Amidon collaborated to incorporate the "It's Your Cause" Video Challenge in the end-of-the-semester capstone project on illegal drugs.

Lafayette Junior Senior High School is a member of New York's OCM BOCES school system. The students were able to script and produce one-minute PSAs using Teen Health & Wellness, a resource available through OCM BOCES' School Library System, and flip video cameras, loaned to them by BOCES. To read more about Lafayette's success with the "It's Your Cause" Video Challenge, check out the newsletter feature on the OCM BOCES site.
