The England Library is so excited to host our fifth annualย Unusual Reading Spot Contest!ย  Students enjoy having their picture taken while reading in an unusual place or pose and entering their picture in our school-wide contest.ย  Students might be found reading in a refrigerator, near an important landmark, in a basketball hoop, or any place your imagination takes you. Our students read EVERYWHERE!

In the photos, students should be visibly reading a book โ€“ and we should clearly be able to see the book cover (see examples above).ย  The 10 winning images will be enlarged to 12โ€ x 16โ€ for display in our England Library during the 2017-18 school year.

Who:ย  Any student attending England!ย  (Only one entry per student, however students are welcome and encouraged to include siblings in a joint photo!)

When:ย  from NOW until Friday, April 21, 2017

Contest Rules:ย  Participating students must turn in a 4โ€ x 6โ€ or 5โ€ x 7โ€ photo print on photo paper of their contest entry (sorry, entries cannot be emailed). ย The submissions will be voted on by a panel of judges and the winning images will then need to provide a digital version of their image (please take the photo in the highest resolution your camera will allow) so that we may enlarge it for display in the library.ย  Please note that โ€œcamera-phoneโ€ photos will not be a high enough resolution to print in such an enlarged size for display in the library.ย  Additionally, please do not Photoshop or otherwise edit the photo in order to superimpose parts of the image โ€“ we want it to be as authentic of an image as possible.ย  Pick up a participation form in the library or download oneย belowย to attach to your contest entry picture.

Please note these additional guidelines:ย  Your book must โ€œmatchโ€ the unusual reading spot, and the cover of your book must be visible in the photo.

Emily Arrow sings with PreK, K, and 1st graders!

To say our students have been a little excited to meet kid-lit-tunes musician Emily Arrow is an understatement! We’ve been reading books, singing her songs, and watching her YouTube videos for weeks now, and the day finally came for her to sing with us LIVE and IN PERSON from the Elsa England Cafeteria!!!!!!
