Challenge 1: Fanart
Bonus Prize Challenge! One lucky artist will win a Wacom CTL480 Intuos Pen Tablet for completing this challenge.
Could it be any easier? Create a piece of original fanart based on a show, book, or game you love. Just make sure you tell us what inspired it!
(Twilight Princess fanart by Guindofish, Youth Read 2013)
Challenge 2: Frankenfood
All the strange food combos at Stampede (like fried pickle pizza) got us thinking about how sometimes, the sum of two foods is greater than the whole. For this challenge, combine two or more foods in a weird and wonderful way, and tell us about your creation. There’s one catch though – you absolutely HAVE to taste test it and give us a review.
Challenge 3: Too Much Drama!
This is a video challenge – record yourself (solo or with friends) performing a dramatic reading of something - the more dramatic, the better (here's an example). It could be a scene from a book, a news article, a selection from a webcomic – any text at all. We highly recommend Mo Willems’ Elephant & Piggie books.
Challenge 4: Haiku Review
Review or summarize a book/movie/game in haiku form – 5/7/5 syllables. Here’s an example for The Fault in Our Stars:
Feeling all the things,
Love in small infinities
Is okay? Okay.
Challenge 5: Read
After all, the program isn’t called “Youth sit around and stare at the walls”…so read, for at least five hours. If you choose this as your challenge, just select “Read” on the “submit a challenge” form.
As usual, we have some suggestions:
