and digital art entries are both accepted. The 1st place prize winner
receives: 50 bookmarks of their design for themselves and 200 for their
school, an enlargement of their design, a bookstore gift certificate, a
certificate signed by the contest judges, a commendation from a
legislator, an invitation to an awards ceremony at the State House, and a
State House tour.
All entries should be submitted to Ms. Charpentier by Wednesday, January 28.
As a school, we can only submit one for the contest, so if we receive
multiple entries, we will hold an extra Book Club meeting to select a
UHS entry on Thursday, January 29.
Need a copy of the entry form? Stop in the library or visit the link in the beginning of this post.
Book Club's next pick is Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck; all are welcome to join the discussion after school in the library on Thursday, February 5.
From Goodreads: "Would you risk it all to change your destiny? The
last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she’d be doing this summer was trying
to break a 300-year-old Indian curse with a mysterious white tiger
named Ren, halfway around the world. But that’s exactly what happened.
Face-to-face with dark forces, spellbinding magic, and mystical worlds
where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece
together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever."
Stop in the library to grab a copy of Tiger's Curse. There are also copies available on OverDrive through CW/MARS and BPL.
books and meetings for the rest of the year have been set, so join us on
the following days if you're interested in any of the books we'll be
reading later this year.
