Freshmen, sophomores and juniors eligible to enter

Blair's English department is hosting its annual Book Review and Poster Contest to promote summer reading. The contest is open to freshman, sophomore and junior students currently enrolled in Blair.

Students entering the contest need to create a poster that includes "a well-written, inspirational review for a book" approximately 250 words in length or a poster with "exciting words and a dynamite graphic that reflect the book's theme and characters," according to a flyer about the contest. The latter must also include a "brief write-up" about the book on the reverse of the poster.

Submissions must be on paper approximately 12" by 18" in size and must include the student's name, grade and ID number, as well as the title and author of the book.

The grand prize for the contest is $100. Second place and third place winners will win $50 and $25, respectively.

Submissions are due on August 30 to students' English teachers or directly to the English department in room 141.
