It’s August! Back-to-school time is here or just around the corner, and Epic 18 wants to show our thanks to EDUCATORS!
Teachers and librarians, you rock! You fill your classrooms with knowledge, kindness, and curiosity. You care about students and connect children with books. We know many of you spend personal money on class supplies. We’d like to help.
We’re hosting a giveaway especially for educators.
One elementary school teacher or librarian will win 37 recently released picture books! 37 new books!
Others will win goodies like bookmarks, stickers, and classroom guides.
But that’s not all! Every educator entering has the option of receiving a postcard from a picture book author personally addressed to their class (well, up to the first 1,000 teachers...we aren’t super human). That’s right. Everyone has a chance to win something!
The giveaway is open August 1st – August 27th. Grand prize winner announced September 4th.
See the end of this post for a complete prize summary.
Thank you for the important work you do, and have a great school year!
