In March, we asked students throughout Maryland to read 30 minutes for 30 days. All participants were entered into a drawing for a Kindle Fire or a $25 Amazon gift card. We have selected eight winners.
And the Read Across Maryland winners are...
Kindle Fire Winners:
Mardela Middle/High School, Wicomico County
Ashburton Elementary, Montgomery County
Edgemere Elementary, Baltimore County
Michael Isaiah Smallwood
Benjamin Tasker MS, Prince George’s County
Amazon Gift Card Winners:
Parkville MS, Baltimore County
West Meade Elementary, Anne Arundel County
Overlook Elementary, Prince George's County
Margaret Brent Middle School, St. Mary’s County
We had an overwhelming response this year with 2,650 entries from across the state which meant a lot of students did a lot of reading. Congratulations to our winners and to all of you who participated. Thanks to our parents, teachers, reading specialists, and librarians who supported and encouraged the students to read and enter. Look out for information on our Summer Radical Readers program where we will be giving out four more Kindle Fires to 5th-9th graders in public schools who submit reading logs for books read July 1-30. Check back here for more details!
