Tweet for FREADOM contest
Join us in the fight against censorship during BBW and Tweet for FREADOM (it’s so important you have to say it all in caps!). Teens and their favorite librarians are invited to Tweet their messages against censorship. Words are a powerful thing so give us 140 characters (that’s how long a Tweet is) speaking out against censorship.
There are two ways to enter:
1) Tweet your message and tag the Teen Librarian’s Toolbox @TLT16
2) Compose your 140 character message and share it on the TLT Facebook wall
Tweets will be accepted beginning Sept. 24 until the end of BBW Oct. 1.
One grand prize winner will receive a signed copy of Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes by frequently banned author Chris Crutcher PLUS six “Read Crutcher? @#$% yes!” wristbands (3 white on black, three black on white) and 25 CC bookmarks.
5 runners-up will receive wrist bands of their own.
Brought to you by TLT and author Chris Crutcher and his magnificent assistant Kelly Halls at ChrisCrutcher.com
Looking for some inspiration? Here is what some others have had to say about censorship!
