Readers Roundup: Garden Creation Contest
Cate here - former WAEA board member and proud WI educator! My first year at Education Manager at Bookworm Gardens has been wonderful, and I look forward to connecting with you about potential collaborations between the Gardens and art educators throughout the state in the future. I have some exciting news to share with the WAEA board regarding the 2017 season at the Gardens and wanted to make sure you were one of the first to know.
For the first time ever, we're holding a Garden Creation Contest for Wisconsin classrooms, and we would love to have lots of submissions from art educators! Check it out:
First Ever Garden Creation Contest
Have you ever wanted to design your own garden at Bookworm? For the first time ever, we are inviting classrooms to submit a proposal for a new space at the Gardens through the Readers Roundup: Garden Creation Contest! Wisconsin classrooms (Preschool - 5th grade) are encouraged to tell us about a book they’ve read and, in their own words (and designs), why it should be selected to be created into a temporary garden at Bookworm.
Submissions are due February 15, 2017.
The winning class will have their ideas transformed into a garden space for the 2017 season! More information and entry forms available online at: http://www.bookwormgardens.org/readers-roundup.html
We'd love it if you could send this out to K-5 educators who are involved on the board and through the WAEA! Please let me know if you have any questions.
