COLUMBIA—The South Carolina Education Association (The SCEA), in coordination with the National Education Association (NEA), will deliver nearly 500 books to the students at Monaview Elementary School in Greenville, South Carolina, as the recipients of the first-ever Read Across America sweepstakes.
Monaview Elementary School first-grade teacher Catherine Holub-Ward, a The SCEA and NEA member, entered the Read Across America sweepstakes on behalf of her students. NEA randomly selected the winner from among more than 27,000 submissions. The contest ran between September 23 and October 7, 2021.
The Read Across America Sweepstakes are part of the latest The SCEA and NEA year-round effort to connect students with diverse books and the joys of reading beyond a single-day event. In August, NEA unveiled its latest list of recommended children’s and Young Adult books, as well as its popular Read Across America digital calendar.
The public event at Monaview Elementary School also marks the start of American Education Week in which we celebrate and honor the individuals working every day to ensure that every student – no matter their race or place – receives a quality public education.
