Press Release Fun: School Librarians and Free Stuff (two great tastes, etc. etc.)
Any contest that begins with the sentence, "School librarians rock" has got my attention, certainly. The Class of 2k8, those intrepid newbie authors and illustrators of middle grade and YA fic, are offering up some nifty prizes to the hardworking school librarians of the world. Check it out, cuties:
Enter the Class of 2k8 Fall Contest!
After you read below, we dare you not to enter!
School librarians rock, and we know it! Help us spread the word about the Class of 2k8’s new fall contest, just for some of our favorite people on Earth. It’s easy to enter and fun!
School librarians can enter by sending us an anecdote about books, reading, or life in the school library, or a snappy quote about books and writing. We’ll be posting our favorites on our Class blog during November, but winners will be chosen randomly from among all entries. In addition, if you pass this on to other school librarians and they mention the referral, you and your school will be entered in the drawing twice–double the chance to win!
First Prize: Your choice of a full set of Class of 2k8 books OR a free author visit from a Class of 2k8 author in your region (if available)!
Two Second Prizes: A $50 gift certificate from Indie Bound (formerly BookSense) plus three books from the Class of 2k8 to add to your school library.
Three Third Prizes: Three books from the Class of 2k8 to add to your school library.
Anecdotes and quotes must be e-mailed to us at contests (at) classof2k8 (dot) com. Pleas be sure to include your name and contact information at your school with your entry. Entries will be accepted from October 1- November 10, and the winners will be announced November 24.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
