We’ve seen so many amazing entries in this year’s School Stars contest. From engaging virtual displays, to hilarious student-made videos, to informational and promotional social posts and much more, schools have shown that despite a challenging past year, the love of reading (and the Sora reading app!) perseveres.

The contest launched on February 1st and will close March 31st – which means there are only a few days left to enter. So if you’ve considered it, but hesitated, this post is for YOU. No promotion is too small. We celebrate all forms of Sora promotion and would love to hear from you!

There’s still time to submit an entry for any of the categories below:
