Link Du Jour: Cover Contest for Kids
Scholastic has a student contest that caught my attention. From the source:
Mark Teague, illustrator of the How Do Dinosaurs series, uses his imagination to help dinosaurs learn about lots of important thingsâ€”how to say good night, play with friends, go to school, even to say â€œI love youâ€!
Now Itâ€™s Your Studentsâ€™ Turn! Create a book cover by filling in the blank: How Do Dinosaurs __________? Then draw the cover you imagine!
1 Grand-Prize Winner will receive a classroom visit from Mark Teague!
10 Runners-Up will receive a 10-book Mark Teague library!
Click here for more information. I could see students getting into this one. Personally, I’d like to see a How Do Dinosaurs Prevent Their Own Extinction cover. A lot of directions you could go with that one.
