Online scavenger hunt, tweet contest part of Teen Tech Week at HPL
Monday, March 18, 2013 7:45 AM
As teens' lives become more intertwined with technology, the Huntington City-Township Public Library celebrates that pairing with "Check In @ Your Library" activities through March 31.
There's a website scavenger hunt and a Twitter contest, along with always-available library staff members who can help teens sort out the many tech opportunities available through the library.
The website scavenger hunt is open to teens ages 12-18 and there is a limit of one entry per person.
Participants in the website scavenger hunt need to print off the questionnaire from the Teen Tech Week page on the library website, www.huntingtonpub.lib.in.us/teen-tech-week-website-scavenger-hunt. The questionnaire can also be picked up at the Children's Desk at the library.
Answers to all questions can be found on the library website.
Each person submitting a questionnaire with correct answers will earn an entry in the prize drawing for an iPad case. Winners will be announced in early April.
Teens in grades 6-12 are challenged to boil down the story of Little Red Riding Hood in the "Compete with Your Tweet" contest.
To enter, tweet the plot of Little Red Riding Hood in 140 characters or fewer in a single tweet to @jan lapan.
The best tweet will win a prize. Teens should obtain parental permission before setting up a Twitter account.
For more information about the contest, call the library at 356-2900.
Teens are invited to visit the library to find out about tech services such as online homework help as well as e-books, movies, music, audiobooks, databases and more.
Library staff members are available to help teens develop the skills they need to use electronic resources effectively and efficiently.
