Harford County Public Library rolled out the red carpet for teens and their families at the Abingdon Library in March at a special screening and awards ceremony for the teen Film This! Book Trailers contest.
Throughout the winter months, teens created and submitted short videos showcasing a favorite book, similar to a movie trailer. At the premiere, the finalist videos were viewed and the winners announced.
Peter Stauffer was awarded first place for his "Chasing the Falconers" book trailer.
The Dietz family including Emily, Sarah, Allison and Grace, won second place for their trailer promoting the book "Do Hard Things."
Delaney Allen won third place for her book trailer promoting "The Goddess Test."
A Fan Favorite award was given to Michael Tilley, Andrew Clarke and Logan Hennlien who made a trailer for "Green Eggs and Ham."
