“Celebrate Literacy” is once again being sponsored by the Mossy Creek Literacy Council, a local council of Tennessee Reading Association (TRA).  Teachers, please encourage your students in grades K-5 to submit a “published” book to the state contest.  Students will be awarded gold, silver, or bronze medals as well as a certificate by the Tennessee Reading Association.  Students and their teachers will be recognized at the Mossy Creek Literacy Council’s annual banquet at Carson-Newman College on April 14, 2009.  All books must be turned in to the literacy coach at your school by the week of Feb. 2nd and no later than Feb. 6th.  Please see the “Celebrate Literacy Award Program Guidelines” as well as the “Official Entry Blank” which must accompany each book.  Please encourage all young authors to participate!
