I’ve just been given my flight arrangements for the Scholastic Canada Book Fairs contest winner. This year it looks like I’m off to visit Tantallon Junior High School in Tantallon, Nova Scotia on Friday June 15, 2006. The contest is a national one that rewards the students who work the hardest over the year to put on the best Book Fairs. I speak to the students in assembly and then spend a little time at lunch with the student Crew that did the hard work. This is my second Book Fair visit. The first (which is where these photos were taken) was the US winner last August: The Graves County Middle School in Paducah, Kentucky, and we had a blast.
The kids liked it, they got out of class for a couple of hours, and I got to eat delicious homemade southern cooking that parents brought in which included chicken and two kinds of cake. And that’s pretty much all it takes for me.
