I Love to Read Month Video Contest

During “I Love to Read Month” in February, SoWashCo Schools is hosting a literacy contest that is open to all students.

The video submission will act as your entry to win a literacy prize sponsored by the SoWashCo CARES Education Foundation. Each winner will be awarded a prize of a three-month subscription box from the Red Ballon Bookstore based on the student’s  age, reading level, and interests.

One winner will be drawn in each age group:  

  • Early learning (Preschool)

  • Elementary (K - 5)
