Summer Sparks Reading Contest

Spark Reading, Learning, and Creating With Buncee and Capstone

Calling all classroom teachers & librarians: Buncee & Capstone Publishing have teamed up to bring you the Summer Sparks Reading Contest! Capstone Publishing and Buncee are dedicated to instilling a love of reading and learning in all students. With summer rolling in, we put our heads together to brainstorm ways to encourage students to read and learn all summer long. Then, an idea was sparked! We are now thrilled to offer this contest to your school.

Reading opens up new worlds to explore. Through books and research, you can travel through time and space, meeting people and going places you’ve never been before! Journal your summer reading adventures and ideas sparked for a chance to win.

To participate, simply have your students create reading journals on Buncee. Buncee is providing access to their creation tool to participating schools, all summer long. Capstone Publishing is offering free access to Capstone Interactive, their digital library, and to their K-6 research database, PebbleGo and PebbleGo Next.

The top three schools with the most Buncee reading journals created by students could win PebbleGo and Buncee for one year, a Cantata Learning Library Skills book set by Shannon Miller and arranged and produced by Emily Arrow, and AN ICE CREAM PARTY!
