Fantasy RoadTrip Contest

roadtrip

Guess what? This summer, you could win an 8GB iPod Touch and signed audiobooks from Listening Library.

Here’s How: First, pick a character (or characters!) from your favorite fantasy book series. Then imagine: If you could go on a road trip with them, where would you go? What would you do along the way? How would you travel? Finally, Create a video and post it on YouTube! 

There’s lots of “fine print” (i.e. rules) associated with this competition, and to get all the details go here: Listening Library Fantasy RoadTrip Contest.
