Thank you to all students who participated in my summer reading contest! I am happy to announce the winners of the contest are Molly Walker of Gates Elementary in Davison and Anastacia Taylor of Carter Middle School in Clio — congratulations! Today I delivered each of them their prize, a free e-reader, along with a charging cord, case and screen protector, paid for with my personal funds — not with taxpayer dollars.
I could not be more pleased with the level of participation and the number of books that were read for this summer’s contest. It is encouraging to see so many young people taking time to immerse themselves in other worlds and keep their minds active during their summer vacations. Thank you to the school districts and libraries that helped with distributing entry forms, and to the participants and their parents. Although the contest is over, I hope parents will continue reading to young ones at home, and encourage a love of reading in their children.
