Three Winners to Receive
a Classroom Full of Books
in the NCBLA's
Our White House
Book Giveaway!
Thank You to Candlewick Press for Donating All Copies of Our White House for the Winners!

Last month the National Children's Book and Literacy Alliance invited adults who live and work with young people to submit their creative ideas for engaging kids during Presidents Month. Three winners were chosen at random from all entries received to be awarded 40 copies of the award-winning, interdisciplinary anthology Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out, enough for all the students in a class or group! The NCBLA thanks everyone who took the time to write and send their entries. 

The winners are:
  • Alamance Christian School in Graham, North Carolina
  • Resurrection Saint Paul School in Ellicott City, Maryland
  • West Prairie South Elementary in Colchester, Illinois

The NCBLA will be publishing a list of some of the most creative activity ideas we received on in the coming weeks! 

This giveaway was made possible by the very generous donation of all prize books by Candlewick Press. THANK YOU!

A perfect companion for Common Core classroom activities, Our White House: Looking In, Looking Out is the interdisciplinary anthology created by over 100 of America’s most gifted storytellers and artists as a project of the National Children’s Book and Literacy Alliance.
