The script was three short sentences: "Thanks for using the library bookdrop. Please insert materials one at a time. The door will close when you are finished."

Some teen contestants added jokes, rap, even "gobble, gobble" to their recorded message for the Prescott Valley Public Library's automated book drop.

Teen Librarian Carol Sibray opened the recording contest for any teen wanting temporary title of "The Voice" library patrons hear as they pull up to the book drop on the north side of the building. The top winner, Kali Mackins, also received a $50 gift card to Kohls, and the second place winner, Shakira Johnson, won a $30 gift certificate to Barnes & Noble Bookstore.

Judges based their selection on enunciation, creativity and originality.

Duane Prince with Channel 15 recorded the auditions. This is the second competition for The Voice. The first winner, Becca Sharyn, recorded a "very spooky message," Sibray said.
