All children in kindergarten through eighth grade are encouraged to participate in a book review writing contest. Students in kindergarten through second grade may draw a picture as their entry, provided that picture depicts a part of the book.
Older children should write about why they liked their book and what set it apart from other books. Cash prizes will be awarded for the top three reviews in each grade.
This contest is intended to encourage children to read and think critically about why they enjoy the books they read. Children can begin reading anytime and submit their reviews no later than December 1, 2010.
Reviews can be dropped off at the Northeast Library, Children's Room, 330 7th St. N.E.
