Character contests are a great way to support the literacy program at your school! Students love hearing the clues, figuring out the book and finally, solving the character. At any grade level, students love the prizes, the joy of participating and the thrill of solving the puzzle! Teachers will treasure seeing their students enjoying reading and talking about their favourite books.
