Students enjoy reading fair
An estimated 400 students participated in the Marshall County School District’s Reading Fair this year. The county-wide competitions selected first place winners from 11 categories who will be invited to the Regional Reading Fair March 3 at Lafayette County High School.
Mary Reid Principal Leigh Anne Sanderson said the reading fair, “allows students a creative way to display their favorite story. And it engages the family as well.”
Children can compete in several different categories by individual, by group, or by family, said Lela Hale, lead teacher in grades 7-12 at Potts Camp.
Students in K-12 were eligible for the Reading Fair competition and prepared a poster illustrating some aspect of the book they selected. Students were required to answer judges’ questions about their book.
The judging at the district level took place recently at Galena School with all first place winners from each school entering the county-wide competition. The first place winners from the district competition go to regional in Oxford and from there first place winners will advance on up to the state-wide competition.
