Each year, our Summer Reading Contest encourages students to read for pleasure while out of school. Just by preparing your students for this year's summer reading contest, you can take part in a contest of your own and earn a chance to win one of several great prizes!
To participate in the Summer Contest, a student must have an Individual Membership in Bookshare. For every student in your school or district who has one by May 31st, 2012, your organization will receive one entry in our educator contest. The more students for whom you get Individual Memberships (learn how here or here), the more chances your organization will have to win!
HERE ARE THE PRIZES:
• Grand Prize: an iPad 2 (one only, a $399.99 value)
• First Prize: MP3 players (three total, one per organization, a $29.99 value)
• Second Prize: A free license to Read2Go (five total, one per organization, a $19.99 value)
• Third Prize: A $20 Staples gift card (five total, one per organization)
• Fourth Prize: A USB drive (five total, one per organization, a $12.99 value)
BENEFITS OF INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIPS:
Besides enabling students to participate in the Summer Reading Contest, Individual Memberships:
• Enable students or parents to download books anywhere, anytime (and all summer long)!
• Allow students or parents to install Bookshare's free reading tools on any computer.
• Promote independence as students learn they can download books themselves.
• Encourage students to read for pleasure, not just for school.
• Make it easier for students to utilize our mobile apps: Read2Go for iOS devices, and Go Read for Android devices
Help your students, and you just might win a prize. Best of luck! Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
