Fourth-graders from DPS’ Centrally Supported Schools and DPS Authorized Charter Schools submitted entries for a writing contest titled, “My Teacher Makes Reading Special for Me…” hosted by Bookstock. The students were required to submit a handwritten essay, poem or letter to a teacher who makes reading special for them. The deadline to submit was March 29.
Awards were presented on Tuesday, April 23 at Laurel Park Place Mall in Livonia during the Bookstock Used Book and Media Sale. All writing contest participants received a $5 “Bookstock Bucks” gift certificate that could be used at the sale.
Rochelle Riley, Detroit Free Press Columnist, and Neal Rubin, Detroit News Columnist served as honorary co-chairs of this year’s event.
