Attention Teachers, Librarians, Homeschoolers, and Readers: The READ LOCAL CHALLENGE is underway!
We invite all schools, libraries, homeschool groups, scout troops … groups of any size to join us! Take the challenge to read as many books for preschool through elementary school students from participating local authors/illustrators as you can by April 30, for a chance to win fabulous prizes, such as signed books and free Skype visits with one of our Read Local authors or illustrators. All materials are available for download at http://mddewv.scbwi.org/read-local/
This program was designed to be as easy as possible for teachers and library staff – so SCBWI is handling all the prize distribution, coordination, etc. All we ask schools and libraries to do is help spread the word and make program materials available! All the participating authors and illustrators are also offering discounts on their school and library visits if you mention the Read Local program.
