Help SES win a Skype visit!

Help Smithville Elementary Library win a Skype visit from a children's author!

Skype is an online video conferencing tool that can allow our students to talk directly to someone in another town, state, or even country! It's like a virtual author visit to our school!

From the Mixed-Up Files...Of Middle Grade Authors is currently holding a contest to win a free Skype visit from one of the authors listed on their site.

How can you help? Each time a comment mentioning our school is posted to the Mixed-Up Files blog, as well as each time the contest is tweeted or posted to Facebook, our school is entered in the drawing to win. So, to help us out, please...

  • Go to the Mixed-Up Files blog post, scroll to the bottom of the page, and add a comment with your name and email address, stating that you want Smithville Elementary Library to win a free Skype visit.

  • Re-tweet this tweet mentioning the contest.

The kids would love the chance to meet some of these great authors, so help us make that happen!

  1. Thanks for posting this. We're really excited about this contest. We’ll draw the lucky winners on May 2 and post their names along with their author pairings here at the Mixed-Up Files on May 3! If you don't win this time, definitely try for the new season!
