The Quitman Elementary Library hosted its annual "Literacy Project" this week. According to the Elementary librarian, Michael Pettiette, the contest received more entries than ever this year. Seventeen students from 3rd through 5th grades participated in the contest.
The students had to read a book and then make a presentation board about the story. Students were judged on several characteristics, some of which included publisher, tone, setting and author's purpose. They were also judged on the plot summary they included, their creativity and neatness, and whether their projects made the judges want to read the book or not.
Judges for the contest were Assistant Superintendent Chris Mason, Assistant Principal Lance Morrow, and Website Administrator Carley Tucker. Projects were judged today and the winners will be announced tomorrow.
