The Susan Symes Award is given in memory of Old Town Teacher, Susan Symes, who died in November of 1996.  All fifth grade students are eligible to participate in the Susan Symes contest and the winner will have their name added to the plaque in the hallway.

This year, students who are interested in participating in the Susan Symes Contest must complete a project depicting one book they read as a 5th grader that made an impact in their life.  Students must design a product that showcases the book and its message. The judges will be looking for a project that is creative, reveals the theme of the book, and shows a connection to how the book was impactful in the students life.  

The librarian and administrators will evaluate the projects and will determine the winner of the Susan Symes Award.  The winner will receive a $50 gift card to Barnes and Noble.

Projects are due no later than Wednesday, May 1, 2019 to the library.   

Project ideas could include:

  • Write a letter to a character in the story.
  • Make a clay sculpture representing an aspect of one of the books.
  • Make a poster to “sell” the book.
  • Design a new book cover.
  • Draw a series of 4 pictures about the book.
  • Give a videotaped oral report about your book- be creative and fun.
  • Make a comic strip based on the book.
  • Use technology to explore the book- PowerPoint presentation, Windows Movie Maker movie, or some other computer based program.

Let your imagination be your guide. We are looking for creativity!
