Read Across America Student Contest

Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on or near March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participate by bringing together kids, teens, and books, and you can, too!

Read Across America also provides DSEA members, parents, caregivers, and children the resources and activities they need to keep reading on the calendar 365 days a year, to motivate children to read and generate new enthusiasm for reading.


 

2018 Student Contest Winners

Every year, the Delaware State Education Association (DSEA) hosts a Read Across America contest that centers on a theme in a book. This year’s book is Whoever You Are by Mem Fox. Delaware public school students are invited to draw a poster, make a video, or write an essay (depending on your grade level) based on the book’s theme of how diversity brings us together.

Every day all over the world, children are laughing and crying, playing and learning, eating and sleeping. They may not look the same. They may not speak the same language. Their lives may be quite different. But inside, they are all alike. Whoever You Are urges us to accept our differences, to recognize our similarities, and-most importantly-to rejoice in both.
