Thanksgiving is around the corner, bringing with it turkey, mashed potatoes and tons of free time for kids. Here’s a great way to mix reading with the holidays: the #KidsCreateKatMcGee writing contest hosted by Edmodo, BiblioNasium, School Library Journal and In This Together Media.
- For starters—Read Kat McGee and the School of Christmas Spirit by Rebecca Munsterer.
- For the main course—Research holidays around the world and pick one that lends itself to a great adventure.
- For dessert—Write a 200-word plot summary of what your Kat McGee holiday adventure would look like. Remember to include a title.
Students have until December 31, 2014, to submit their story ideas. The best title/plot synopsis will be published as the next book in the Kat McGee Adventure Series and the winning team will:
- Receive credit in the author’s acknowledgements for all its members
- Get profiled in School Library Journal, Edmodo, and BiblioNasium
- Receive a $50 Amazon Gift Card
