So I’m still recuperating from a big wedding and then a big, week-long flu. I’ll be back in full force as soon as I can, but here’s a little tidbit for now. Stephanie discovered this fun contest and suggested that I share it with you.
The Newbery Medal is the most prestigious award in children’s literature. The American Library Association has awarded it every year since 1922. (This year it went to Clare Vanderpool’s Moon Over Manifest. Congratulations, Clare!)
That’s a lot of Newbery winners. Maybe too many? You can’t read all 90 books! (Well, maybe you can.)
But you do have 90 seconds to spare, right? So here’s our contest, open to anyone: make a video that compresses the story of a Newbery award-winning book into 90 seconds or less.
Stephanie says “stay tuned for other entries! I really want to see how the contest goes. It could be hilarious.”
