HIGH SCHOOL CELEBRATES READING HIGH SCHOOL CELEBRATES READING

With February being Library Lovers’ Month, it is the perfect time for local students to celebrate reading with I Love to Read Week.  This annual event was held at the high school this week and included a variety of activities related to reading promotion.  From dress-up days to a poetry contest, from a week-long library scavenger hunt to a photo display, each literary-themed activity was a fun opportunity for students to not only celebrate reading, but also to earn the chance to win monetary prizes generously sponsored by the Hickman County Arts Council. 

 As part of the week’s events, students were challenged to create a found poem by using a black-out technique.  Here, students take a copy of a random page of text and create a “found” poem by isolating certain words in a particular order to create a new idea or unique sentiment.  The top 20 entries were put on display in the library, and the entire student body was asked to vote for their favorite.  Prizes were awarded as follows: 1st place Latosha Hurt, 2nd place Allison Pettit, 3rd place Brandi Hornback.
