Tomorrow kicks off the 10th annual Global Read Aloud with more than 1 million students taking part around the world. It is hard to believe that what started as a small idea has grown into this global movement all surrounding books.
To help us celebrate our 10th year, Padma Venkatraman, author of The Bridge Home, is holding the following contest with the grand prize being a free Skype call with her! The winner will be decided by my students after October 18th.
Create an original poster to raise awareness of hunger, homelessness, or any other social justice issue inspired by or connected to The Bridge Home that you feel strongly about.
Do artwork using any medium you choose, add a caption (original phrase or sentence or reference a quote with a proper citation) that is integrated into the poster.
Take a photo and upload it to the google form below.
You may create the poster on your own or as a group, but please indicate if it is an individual or group entry and your grade ( class level) and provide contact information for your school and responsible teacher.
Please submit by October 15th. All submissions must contain work created solely by young people. Contest is open globally.
