90-Second Newbery is an annual video contest for young filmmakers created by author James Kennedy, challenging them to create a movie that compresses the story of a Newbery Award-winning book into 90 seconds or less. The possibilities are endless! How about Charlotte's Web as a superhero movie, or The Whipping Boy as a space opera? Learn more about 90-Second Newbery here.
