Since February, we’ve been collecting your entries for the School Stars contest. So far, we’ve seen so many awesome submissions, from amazing bulletin board displays, to memes, to videos and more! Your entries are creative, funny, heart-warming, and inspiring. We love getting a glimpse into the work you’re doing every day to promote reading and Sora alongside your students.  

This year the School Stars contest took off on Feb. 6, but there are still a few days left to enter! Entries are accepted through the end-of-day on Mar. 31.  If you’re already promoting Sora in your school, simply document it with a photo or video and submit it to the contest! It’s quick, easy, free to enter and there’s no promotion that’s too small.

(Need some last minute inspiration? Check out submissions from some of our winners in 2022 and 2021!).

  • Best in Social Media: Share how you promoted Sora across your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) to engage your school community.  
  • Best Community Engagement: Have you spread the word about Sora beyond the classroom? Share how you’ve achieved the buy-in of your community; whether it’s through partnering with the local library (Public Library CONNECT), encouraging parent/guardian engagement, increasing faculty and administrator support, etc., we want to hear about it!  
  • Best use of Sora in the Classroom: Show us how you’ve integrated Sora into the classroom to support your learning objectives with lessons, activities or assignments.  
  • Best Student-Made Submission:  Sora’s impact on your students fuels our work. Share how your students have shown their love for Sora and spread that love to their classmates. Maybe it was a fun video, presentation or even a song! We welcome all mediums. 

Insider Tip

While we have entries in every category, the two with the fewest entries so far are “Student-Made Submission” and “Social Media.” Fewer entries mean higher odds of winning!
