Contests

Who doesn't love a good contest? There will be ample opportunity for students to enter library contests. Entry forms are available on the library bulletin board. There will be several types of entry forms; each with a specific reading goal in mind. For every entry form completed, the student will receive one entry into a drawing that will be held once every grading period starting in September. At the end of the year, all of the entries will be re-entered into a grand prize drawing. I don't yet know what the grand prize will be, but I know it'll be something the students should be willing to work for.
