Congratulations to the 2019 Reading Fair Winners

March 1, 2019

Jennifer Walker of Spann Elementary and twin sisters Arielle and Arianna Brumfield of Bailey APAC Middle School were winners of the Regional Reading Fair held February 1 in Jackson. They also qualified to compete in the State Fair held on February 26, where Walker received Honorable Mention.

The Mississippi Reading Fair originated at the Mississippi Department of Education in 1998. The purpose of the competition is to provide students in grades K-12 the opportunity to share their favorite fictional book through a storyboard 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.

There are four levels of competition: Level 1 – School, Level 2 – District, Level 3 – Regional, and Level 4 – State. Only first place winners in each division proceed to the next round of competition. Students' participation in the school and district reading fairs prepares them for the regional and state competitions.
