District Student Selected as Video Contest Winner
For the second year in a row, a book trailer video created by an MVR-III fifth grader was chosen as winner in a state-wide contest. This year, Chloe Newton from Robertsville Elementary won for the book The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street by Lindsay Currie. Chloe’s trailer will be used to represent one of eleven books selected as Mark Twain Award nominees. Click HERE to view all of the winning trailers for the 2019 contest.
Dylan Stout from Nike Elementary was a contest winner last year. His trailer was selected to represent the book Ghost by Jason Reynolds, and his winning entry can be viewed HERE.
The book trailer contest, held by the Missouri Association of School Librarians (MASL), chooses student-created work that helps recognizes the best books written for students each year. The book trailer contest has been held the past few years, although the Mark Twain Award itself has been voted on by students in grades four through six since 1971.
