The purpose of the District's reading fairs is to provide scholars in grades K-12 the opportunity to share their favorite book through a storyboard or multimedia display. The goal of the Reading Fair is to enhance and encourage reading at all grade levels and to allow students to collaborate with their peers. As students develop their reading fair projects, they connect to the Mississippi College- and Career-Readiness Standards for each grade level.
There are two levels of Reading Fair competition in JPS: Level 1 – School and Level 2 – District. The first place winner from each category at the school level is invited to participate in the District level competition. Winners received trophies, medals and other recognition for their accomplishment.
