K-5 “Find Philly’s Superheroes” contest

24 Sep

Although Fall 2020 started off differently than past years, one thing hasn’t changed, and that’s the heroes in our homes, community, and neighborhood. The A Book A Day program (which places books in two West Philly schools) wants to hear about the powers that your heroes possess. Ask them what they’re best at and tell us what you learned. You can submit a written and illustrated entry. We also welcome oral storytelling (your audio recording should be up to 3-minutes long). Please visit their website to learn more about the contest and how to submit your work. Application deadline is October 30th, 2020.
