Hi all. Last week I posted a contest on the blog, asking you to tell me what’s cool about your school for your chance to win an autographed copy of Off to Class: Incredible and Unusual Schools Around the World, a new book from Owlkids.
Well, the entries poured in and I just chose a winner by random draw. Drum roll, please!
The winner of the Off to Class Contest is… blog reader Oscar! Just for the record, here’s what Oscar thinks is cool about his school:
“My school is awesome in many ways. There is almost everything! From Kindergarten to Grade 7, everyone has fun and the opportunity to do awesome things, from picking up garbage with other grades, to choosing awesome and new books from the library, to making food from our garden with Green Team members, to walk-a-thons where we walk a certain amount to fundraise, to MANY MORE!!! Do I need to explain more??? All I can say is we have a lot of fun!”
Nice! Sounds like you have a very cool school there, Oscar. You also have a signed copy of Off to Class coming at you. Congratulations! (Note: those who didn’t win a copy of the book can still find it at the Owlkids online store here.)
And that’s it for me today. Many thanks to all who entered the contest. I will be sure to do this again very soon.
Talk to you soon, bloggers!
P.S. Congratulations also to Susan Hughes, author of Off to Class, who just last night won the Norma Fleck Award for Canadian Children’s Non-fiction for her book, Case Closed? We recommended it in the December 2010 Calendar. It’s a good one!
