2022 DC Public Library Dinosaur Roaring Contest

DC Public Library wants to hear you roar in D.C.'s second annual Dinosaur Roaring Contest!

DC Public Library wants to hear you roar! Once again, we are calling on dinosaur fans of all ages to share their best impressions of their dinosaur breed of choice. Do you have a killer pterodactyl shriek, a mean tyrannosaurus growl or a wicked brontosaurus grunt?  Record a video of your best dinosaur roar (10 seconds or less) and submit your entry here. The submission deadline is June 30, 2022.

Need some inspiration? Check out last year’s winning entrants.  

Who can participate?
This contest is open to all ages and species. We have categories ranging from toddler through adult, from group submission to pets. Adults are strongly encouraged to compete.

What happens with the videos?
Our librarian judges will award trophies and prizes in categories such as vocals, performance, direction, production, originality, costumes, choreography, best incorporation of a DC landmark, etc. Several entries will be selected for inclusion in our 2022 compilation video which will be available to view on the DC Public Library Youtube page in mid-July,

How will I know if my entry has been selected?
Entrants will be notified via email in early July. Prizes will be available to collect from your closest participating library.

What if I have technical difficulties accessing the form or uploading my video?
For questions or technical assistance, please contact elaine.pelton@dc.gov or one of the participating DC Public Library locations.
