Forest Hill student named "Star Reader" in national Scholastic Reading Club Sweepstakes
NEW YORK — Forest Hill, La., student, Hannah Daigrepont, a first grader at Our Lady of Prompt Succor School, has been selected from more than 14,000 entries as a Scholastic Reading Club Star Reader.
Hannah will appear in the national First Grader February flyer, along with a review of Princess Posey and the New First Grader by Stephanie Greene, and will also receive a 10-book library.
Hannah is a Star Reader because of her nomination that said that her passion for reading amazes her family every day. If Hannah wakes up before the rest of the family on the weekend, she will have at least 10 books spread across her bed.
Parents and teachers submitted students’ entries from September through December 2013 at www.scholastic.com/starreader by sharing why the child is a Star Reader, along with his or her photograph (optional) and favorite book. Winners were randomly chosen. All submissions are featured on the gallery at www.scholastic.com/starreader. A total of 32 winners have been randomly selected and featured in one for each flyer (Pre-school, Kindergarten, 1st Graders, 2nd Graders, 3rd Graders, 4th Graders, 5th Graders, and Middle School) for February, March, April, and May.
“Congratulations to the 14,000 Star Readers that were nominated and to all the children that found such joy in reading books they love,” said Judy Newman, Executive Vice President, Scholastic and President, Scholastic Reading Club. “Our goal is to make sure that kids continue to be excited by books and to help parents and teachers find the best books for their students so they can reach higher levels of reading proficiency through increased independent reading . Our Star Readers proved that they are on the road to reading success.”
