MCS will host our District Reading Fair, for all school level first place winners, on Thursday, January 19, 2017 at Madison County Central Office.
- 8:00 am - Registration/Setup
- 8:30 am - Judging begins
The goal of the Reading Fair is to enhance and encourage reading at all grade levels and to allow students to collaborate with their peers. Ultimately, as a result of participating in this process, students will experience a deeper enjoyment from reading and develop a lifelong love of reading.
There are four levels of competition: school, district, regional, and state. Only first place winners in each division proceed to the next round of competition. Over 1,200 students compete regionally each year. This is significant because these students represent the several thousands of students who compete at both the school and district levels. The Mississippi Department of Education strives to motivate all students to read as they soar towards excellence.
