Calling all members of the Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA)!

CODE and the ATA are excited to give you a chance to win some great prizes while promoting the love of reading through social media.

Entering the contest is easy. Simply create a short video (up to 60 seconds long) sharing the name of the book you most love reading to/with your students and why. You can make the video as creative as you wish. It's all #fortheloveofreading

Books make us laugh and cry; they spark our imaginations; and open new worlds to us. Great books are one of the most powerful tools of any child’s educational journey, no matter where they live. We can’t wait to hear about favorite books for your classrooms!
