Holly Harshman Elementary held a local-level Book Fair and brought in judges to determine which students would move on to the next level of competition – regionals to be held soon at the DeQueen-Mena Educational Cooperative Extension.
Students created display boards and gave oral presentations on their chosen books, either fiction or non-fiction.
Both fourth and fifth grade students participated with several displaying great craftsmanship.
In fourth grade, fiction winners were: Isabel Vacca, presenting Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and Kinley Hall presenting What the Moon Saw.
Fourth grade non-fiction winners were: Jorden Davis, presenting The Titanic, and Autumn Lockhart, presenting The Life Cycle of an Emperor Penguin.
