Teen Summer Spark Challenge 2017 @ The Field Library Rules

This Challenge is open to Field Library teen patrons only. Teen participants must have a Field Library teen card. It’s free to sign-up if you don’t have a card already (something with your name + photo, something with your name + address), and if you do have a card that has fines you may still participate. The judge for these challenges will be the teen librarian Sarah Prosser. Participants must provide Sarah with either a phone number, or email address that they can be reached.


There will be one (1) first place winner who will receive a $100 Amazon gift card.

There will be one (1) second place winner who will receive a $50 Amazon gift card.

There will be one (1) third place winner who will receive a $25 Amazon gift card.

There will be one (1) fourth place winner who will receive a $25 Amazon gift card.


In order to win, participants must complete Challenges that will earn them points. Challenges will be released weekly on Monday mornings at 9:00 am EST. The first challenge will be released on June 26, 2017 at 9:00 am EST. There will be a hard copy posted in the Teen Section of the library, as well as a digital copy available in full on the Teen WordPress site ( Participants have until Friday, August 25, 2017 at 5:00pm EST to submit their completed challenges. Don’t procrastinate!


In the event of a tie, the teen who has completed more challenges than the other tie-holder will win.

In the event that that is also a tie, the teen who has attended more programs than the other tie-holder will win.

In the event that that is also a tie THERE SHALL BE A FIGHT TO THE DEATH. (No, no. Just kidding about that last part.) In the extremely unlikely event that there is a need for a third tie-breaker, a quickfire challenge shall be given, and whoever completes it first will be the winner.


There will be a total of forty-eight (48) Challenges, spread out over a period of eight (8) weeks. Each week, six (6) challenges will be released. (This means you can’t do them all at once immediately!)  


Completed challenges can be submitted five (5) ways:

  1. Over Snapchat – must include your name and challenge # either as the caption, or as a chat message immediately after. Image submissions over Snapchat must be made viewable for the full 10 seconds, and videos must be looped at least once. (Snapchat username: fieldteens)
  2. Over Instagram – must tag @FieldLibraryYA in the post, must include challenge # in the caption. If you choose to use this method, you must either DM the Teen Instagram account your name or email Sarah ( with your name and Instagram handle.

On August 28, 2017 from 3:00-5:00pm EST there will be a Summer Spark Challenge Award Ceremony and Party held in the Nutrition Room. Any participant who has completed 16+ challenges is invited to attend, and the winners will be announced and awarded their prizes at this event. Once participants have crossed the 16 Completed Challenges threshold, Sarah will notify them either by email, phone call, or in-person. If a winner cannot be present at the Award Ceremony, Sarah will hold onto the award until the winner can pick it up. She will notify winners promptly on Saturday August 26, 2017 (which is why she needs something to contact you with, either email or phone, but preferably phone!)


Good luck, and have fun!
