The Courier-Post’s Celeste Whittaker — a book author, former sports writer and metro news reporter covering Burlington County — will host the live feed with the winning school, broadcasting the reading event live for viewers across the region to see.
For six years, Whittaker participated in the BookMates literacy program and read to elementary school children weekly in the Willingboro School District.
March 2 is Dr. Seuss's birthday, so students may choose to read a book by the beloved children's author.
If our school is the winner, the principal, administrators and teachers must decide how to select the winning classroom.
Nominate our school by Tuesday, Feb. 20 at noon.
To nominate our school, email reporter Celeste Whittaker at email@example.com. Tell her why reading is so important to our school or classroom and at least one or two things that the school does to promote literacy.
Include the name, email and daytime phone number of a contact at the school.
Voting for the poll will open Wednesday, Feb. 21, and close by 2 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 23.
The March 2 live feed on Facebook will be broadcast on Courier-Post's Facebook page and courierpostonline.com.
