Monday Announcements

Thanks to Erika Dyk, who helped staff the RRVWP table at the ND United Conference last week. The conference did not have a large number of attendees, but we got to have in-depth conversations with several teachers about the work we do.
The only event on our calendar this week is the Scholastic meeting at the Plains Art Museum from 4:15-5pm on Wednesday, October 28th.  Olivia Edwardson will begin with a brief overview of the Awards. The event will cover how to create an account on the Scholastic microsite, how to help students submit works of writing or art, and how to find the fee waiver forms (and where to submit fees). An informal Q&A will conclude the meeting, giving educators an opportunity to ask any questions they may have about the program.

Participants will have a choice of a free book or catalog of past award winners.
