Imagine a brand-new reading area at your school where students can sit in comfy beanbag chairs, relax, and read. Add to this: a stereo listening center and more than 1,000 books! Well, it can happen—if you let your school know about the National School Supply Lists Directory at TeacherLists.com and enter its Scholastic Reading Oasis contest!
TeacherLists.com is running the Reading Oasis contest with partner Scholastic Instructor, and here’s how it works: Encourage your school to post all its student supply lists for the 2014-15 school year in the National School Supply Lists Directory at TeacherLists.com sometime between now and Aug. 1, 2014. That’s it! Once the lists are uploaded, your school is automatically entered to win the Scholastic Reading Oasis prize.
The prize, which is valued at more than $13,000, is a turnkey package so the winning school only needs to set up the components and it will have a complete, ready-to-go classroom reading area for its students. What’s more, Scholastic will even come to the winning school to help set up the Reading Oasis.
TeacherLists.com created the National School Supply Lists Directory to help schools, teachers, and parents more easily create and share school supply lists and wish lists. More than 25,000 schools are already using the directory! Here's more information on the National School Supply Lists Directory at TeacherLists.com.
