School of Discovery Participates in the AEA's
Be a Champion and Read Contest
SOD (Selma) - The School of Discovery Genesis Center is proud to announce its participation in the Alabama Education Association (AEA) fourth annual Be a Champion and Read Contest beginning September 26, 2014. The goal of the program is to get students and parents excited about reading.
The school strongly encourages all students to participate in the challenge. To hype the contest, SOD students are allowed to wear their Auburn and Alabama T-shirts on Friday as they participate in the school’s Reading Rally, which kick-offs the Accelerated Reader Program.
All K-8 students who read six books qualify to win a trip to the Iron Bowl with two guests, sideline passes, and pre-game activities.
Be a Champion and Read Contest requires students to read six reading level-appropriate books by SOD’s deadline of November 10, 2014. Students who are Alabama Crimson Tide fans read for Alabama and the students who are Auburn Tiger fans read for Auburn. The librarian, Ms. Long, will then mail the students’ entry cards to AEA by the official November 12 deadline.
What can you win?
Each successful student will be awarded a Be a Champion and Read” contest certificate of recognition.
Iron Bowl Tickets – The two winning students (one for Alabama and one for Auburn) and two guests will receive free tickets to the Iron Bowl! Each prize includes sideline passes and pre-game activities.

$2,000 – Two schools with at least 70 percent student participation will be randomly drawn and will win $2,000 for each of their libraries!
$500 - Two teachers and/or librarians who decorate bulletin boards, walls, or doors to promote the contest will each be eligible to win $500. Photo submissions will be accepted at firstname.lastname@example.org until November 12, 2014. A panel of judges will choose the winners.
