We Want YOU!

The #30SecondBookTalk is back and this season promises to be the best ever. We can’t wait to see who earns the title of WORLD BOOK TALK CHAMPION!

Each year, Jennifer LaGarde and I host an epic podcast featuring 16 book-talkers from around the globe. Then, tens of thousands of readers vote to decide which epic educator will take home the coveted Vince Lombooki Digital Badge, and a host of other goodies from our friends at Scholastic. First, we need to hear from you!

So…do you think you have what it takes to be a Lead Learner (coached by Brad) or a Literacy Legend (coached by Jennifer)? Show us what you got by filling out this short form! Looking for inspiration?! Here are last year’s final four finalists to help inspire your creativity.

You’ll want to respond to this casting call ASAP. Videos are due by March 22nd. We’ll announce this year’s teams by doing a “live draft” on Facebook Live on Tuesday, March 26th at 3:30pm CST.

The #30SecondBookTalk is one of our favorite events of the year. We are always blown away by the passion of those who participate, and we also know that when adults talk about the books they love with kids, those same kids can’t help but be inspired.

Passion is contagious, so…let the games begin! We can’t wait to get this literacy-party started.
