1st Annual Poster Contest!

Cedar Valley Readers is excited to announce our First Annual Attendance Awareness Poster Contest! We encourage any elementary (k-6th grade) student in the Cedar Valley to enter. All you need to do is think creatively about how reading “takes you places!”

Did a great story transport you to a far-away world full of unbelievable creatures? Show them to us! Or maybe you read recently read about frogs and butterflies, then took a trip to the park to explore more? Draw it for us! Or, perhaps you want to take a more literal approach and illustrate how your reading skills help you decipher a map, or read street signs! Maybe you love of reading takes you to a place you get to read with your friends every day….your school!

Prizes will be awarded for most creative poster in two categories: K-2 and 3-6! Make sure to get your entries in by September 1st.

Posters can be mailed or dropped off at the Operation Threshold offices:
