AWE, Inc. announced the winner of its 2013 Video Contest for Public Libraries at its annual breakfast event for customers at the American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference in Chicago, Ill., on June 29, 2013.

Evanston Public Library garnered the most votes by the AWE staff for its entertaining and inspiring video.

"This award gives libraries a creative way to showcase their library and the value the Early Literacy Station computers provide—and to express their desire to have more,” said Michael Mok, VP of US Sales. “The entries are very fun to watch and it is always hard to select a winner. We would like to thank the many libraries that took time to apply for the video award. All of the submissions were unique and heart-warming."

The winner of the video contest, Evanston Public Library in Evanston, Ill., was present at the AWE customer breakfast event to receive the award. The award is a free Early Literacy Station or AfterSchool Edge (winner’s choice), which includes AWE’s full warranty and upgrades plan for three years.

The annual video contest is open to customers and non-customers alike. All of the submissions are available for viewing on AWE's YouTube channel.
