Teen Tech Week Teen Tech Week, sponsored by the American Library Association and the Young Adult Library Services Association, was held at BSHS March 7 – 11. This year’s theme was “Mix and Mash.” To celebrate, BSHS LMC sponsored a Book Trailer Contest requiring students to use a variety of media (mix and mash!). Eight students created trailers and entered them for the contest judging. Mrs. Menzer, Mr. Pack, and Mrs. Lindman judged the entries and awarded 1st place to Jessica Pathammavong. Jessica received a $10 gift card to Barnes and Noble and her book trailer is posted on the home page of the library’s website. A screen shot of part of Jesscia’s book trailer can be seen on the right.
