Students at Bataan Elementary, Jefferson Elementary, Port Clinton Middle School, ICS and Danbury are being encouraged to read the books nominated for this year’s Buckeye Book Award.
The Buckeye Children’s and Teen Book Award program is designed to encourage students in Ohio to read literature critically, to promote teacher and librarian involvement in young adult literature programs, and to commend authors of such literature. http://www.bcbookaward.info.
Winners in the categories of K-2 and 3-5 will receive class pizza parties and books for the classroom. Winners in the category of 6-8 will receive gift cards. The contest runs from now until Oct. 31.
