Three Carson City students were named finalists for the 2023 Nevada Reading Week Art Contest – Michelle Escobar, 10th grader at Carson High School, Madelyn Monson, 11th grader at Carson High and Cadence Schnaible, seventh grader at Carson Middle School.
The theme for the 2023 Nevada Reading Week is “One World, Many Stories.” The overall winner’s artwork in the statewide contest will be used across Nevada for apparel and social media.
Nevada Reading Week, Feb. 27 through March 3, serves to promote a lifelong love of reading and coincides with National Read Across America Day, observed March 2, the birthday of children’s book author Ted Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss. From students in pre-kindergarten listening attentively on a circle rug to their teacher’s riveting read-aloud to high school seniors engaging in rigorous discussions about a novel, the joy of reading is evident.
Activities often include book studies, author studies, literary readings by renowned authors, book fairs, and family literacy events. The stewards of Nevada Reading Week include pre-K-12 school librarians, educators, the Nevada Department of Education, the Nevada State Library, public libraries, community leaders, students and their families.
