The 2012-2013 BC READS! Student Scholarship Winners have been selected!
Thank you to the faculty who participated in the selection process for the common book and for judging the entries in the scholarship contest. The winners will be honored at an afternoon tea during National Library Week in April.
This year’s BC READS! book, Deep Economy by Bill McKibben, has been used in 19 classes.
A Scholarship Committee, composed of faculty, reviewed the entries. Each entry provided a unique interpretation of the messages conveyed by the book. The entries will be on display in the Library Media Center starting March 1, 2013.
Congratulations to the students and their instructors for their work in integrating this year’s common book into their learning experiences.
