Contests, Campaigns & Incentives: Ideas to Engage Students with Reading

Event Date & Time: Tuesday, March 27, 2018, 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT

Keeping students engaged can be challenging during the last quarter of the school year. School Library System Director Lynn Miller of the Sullivan County BOCES (NY) will show you how to design a multi-week campaign that drives student excitement for reading. Her March Book Madness program has resulted in an increase in circulation in each of the last three years. OverDrive Education’s Lauren Bogatay will also share campaign, incentive and program promotions from other schools that you can use year round or in a shorter, contest form in your library or classroom.
