The ninth annual Lincoln literary contest has taken a life of its own over the years
“Students come back in September telling me they already have an idea for their pumpkin from a book they read over the summer. Younger siblings who finally reach kindergarten are thrilled to finally enter the contest themselves. Students walking through the pumpkins find new books that they want to try. It is a literacy event that keeps on giving and that students look forward to every year.” -Lauren Capuano, Library Media Specialist
This year, 39 students in grades K-2 and 30 students from grades 3-5 entered, yet there were more pumpkins than entries because some creations contained multiple pumpkins.
