This is an extra special day. Today marks the 35th Anniversary of Star Wars ! DK Canada (more importantly one person who works there Chris) has come up with an utterly AMAZING contest. I have to say, when I first asked him if he had some swag hanging around the office, I was totally knocked off my chair literally when he emailed me to tell me about this. I LOVE IT SO MUCH !!
Here it is !!
Starting today and running until May 31, 2011 at 6pm EST is to simply send us a photo of yourself, your friends or your family reading a Star Wars book and you could win a complete DK Star Wars library worth over $400 as well as a full set of our Star Wars DK Readers donated to a Canadian school or library of your choice!
For every photo submitted, DK Publishing will donate a “toonie” to Frontier College, Canada’s original literacy organization.
Take a photo of yourself, friends or family with a Star Wars book and send it in to us at firstname.lastname@example.org (jpgs only, no larger than 5 mb). Please include the headline MAY THE 4th BE WITH YOU in your email. One lucky entrant will win a complete DK Star Wars collection and a Canadian school or library of their choice will receive a complete DK READERS Star Wars set.
Deadline for submissions is May 31st, 2011 6 EDT
This is SUCH a worthwhile cause. I am literally shocked at how many not only children but adults cannot read today. So, if you would like more information about the college and what it does, please click the link or on their logo below to learn more.
Frontier College has been a leader in providing literacy programs since 1899. Literacy is an essential skill in today’s world. At Frontier College, we believe it’s a fundamental right. Low literacy skills are directly linked to poverty, poor health and high unemployment. Through a network of thousands of volunteers, Frontier College is helping Canadians to realize their potential and seize the opportunities that come their way.
