The Great Scavenger Hunt Contest
Books and cupcakes...what could possibly be better?
Free stuff, you say?
Well then you are in luck, 'cause we can throw that in the mix, too.
A couple of weeks ago I attended the East Texas Library Summit, put on by the ever-so-fabulous Sharon Gullett, and attended a great session put on by my friend and fellow librarian Carol where I learned about Kay Cassidy's Great Scavenger Hunt Contest.
This is REALLY super cool stuff because she makes it SOOO easy for us to reward student reading. She lays it all out there...and even provides the rewards (although I plan to add little bitty prizes to the mix, as well. what can I say? I'm a fan of free stuff, so I figure the kids are, too, right?)
Kay is the author of The Cinderella Society and a fellow cupcake fan
(so you just KNOW she's a great person!).
