Date Due: Monday, March 2nd
Time: No later than 3:30 p.m.
Place: East Side Elementary Library
Attn: Patt Hilmer
Reminder: Only 3 entries may be submitted, per category, per each grade level teacher.
Simply: A teacher may only submit their top 3 entries for Fiction, Non-Fiction, and Poetry which equals a total of 9 books submitted for that teacher.
Middle School/High School/Ten Sleep teachers: We realize that you teach multiple class periods. You are allowed 3 entries, in each category, PER class period. Same rule as above applies to you as each class is a classroom of its own.
Example: You teach 5 different classes in a given day, times that by three entries for fiction, you would be allowed to submit a total of 15 fiction entries total, but only three from each class period. Students must mark their class period, in the upper right hand corner of their entry. This insures compliance is being met.
Fiction and Non-Fiction entries cannot exceed 4,000 words, and if over 3,000, must indicate a word count on the entry form. CHANGE: Our council voted that all non-fiction entries must be narratives, not reports, as the judging rubrics are set up for narratives.
Poetry entries may consist of: one long epic poem (book length, usually) or a collection of five (5) poems.
