To celebrate Teen Tech Week, Rosen Publishing is hosting an exciting new \It's Your Cause\ Video Contest.

From depression to dating to green living, your teens can spread the word about any Teen Health & Wellness topic they feel passionately about by creating a PSA (public service announcement). All videos that meet submission guidelines will be published on Teen Health & Wellness when we launch our video program this summer.

Plus, three teens will be selected at random from the pool of submissions to win an iPod Shuffle. And one library will be selected at random to win a free twelve-month subscription to Teen Health & Wellness.

Full contest details are available here.

Contact miriamg@rosenpub.com today or call (877) 381-6649 with questions about the contest or free trial access.
