A reading fair provides students the opportunity to share their favorite book through a storyboard display. The fair is set up similarly to a science fair and students may dress up like a character from their story when presenting.

Students will choose a favorite fiction story and create a storyboard to take to competition. The project that is sent from each school will be entered into a final competition at George Town Public Library which takes place on 22 March 2014 between 10am and 11.30am. Island-wide winners will be determined by the panel of judges, and prizes will be awarded at the final competition on 22 March.
