For several weeks, people around the world have been contributing to our 30-second book talk Flipgrid. In March, we narrowed the videos to 16 and have been inviting a global audience to listen to the videos and vote on the brackets each week.
After many, many votes, we have a winner! Congratulations to Evin for her book talk of It Came in the Mail by Ben Clanton. Adaline’s book talk of I Dissent by Debbie Levy was a very close 2nd place. Both of these students will receive a special recognition on our morning broadcast as well as gift certificates to our local bookshop, Avid Bookshop. Please help me in congratulating our winners, but more importantly, continue to share great books with one another!
Be sure to take time to visit the full grid of videos to watch many other incredible book talks from around the world. The competition is fun, but the real reward is hearing from so many student voices sharing their love of books.
