Local Fourth-Grader Wins Read-A-Thon Prize

On Friday a very special client picked up her books.

Arianna was the winner of Roosevelt Elementary’s “Make Your Own Book” contest, a part of the Olympia elementary school’s 2016 Read-A-Thon.

The Read-A-Thon was a school-wide fund raiser and contest to encourage more reading at home. Participants read for as many minutes as they could in the month of February and collected pledges for donations from family and friends. There was also a contest for all participants to pitch their idea for a book. The winner was chosen by a committee of teachers and parents.

Arianna’s story, “The Girl Who Saved a Dinosaur” was inspired by her dream of becoming a paleontologist. She tells the tale of Rosie, a baby dinosaur that travels through time and lands in Olympia, and the fourth grader Miah, who helps heal Rosie’s injuries and find the portal to bring her home.

Congratulations, Arianna! We hope all of the students in our community have a great summer reading and writing.
