My Favorite Teacher Contest! Middle School & High School Students Nominate Your Favorite Teacher @ Barnes & Noble
Feb 18 @ 9:00 am

My Favorite Teacher Contest:
Several years ago, Barnes & Noble in Rhode Island created the My Favorite Teacher Contest. It was a program to provide students an opportunity to voice their appreciation & recognize a teacher who has had positive impact on them -either personally or academically. Barnes & Noble Corporation loved the idea so much that they developed it into a national program. Needless to say, this program is dear to our hearts at Barnes & Noble Warwick. A school is much like a bookstore. They’re both places of aspiration, passion, education and dreams. That’s why Barnes & Noble is excited to recognize the foundation of our great American schools – our dedicated teachers. The Barnes & Noble My Favorite Teacher Contest provides students with the opportunity to tell our community how much their teachers are appreciated.
From Jan. 1st-March 1st – middle school and high school students can nominate a teacher for the My Favorite Teacher Contest. Students fill out the entry form – and write an essay, poem, or thank-you letter (500 words or less, in English on 8.5″ x 11″ white paper) sharing how a teacher has influenced their life and why they appreciate and admire them. Submissions are due to Community Business Development Manager at Barnes & Noble Warwick at 1350-B Bald Hill Rd. Warwick, RI 02886 by March 1st. Entry forms can be obtained at Barnes & Warwick, or emailing crm2159@bn.com to have entry form sent to you, BN Warwick, downloaded from www.facebook.com/BNWarwick or visit www.bn.com/myfavoriteteacher to download an entry form. A panel of judges will read the submissions and rate each submission based on three different criteria. One winning teacher and student is chosen, along with two runners up. Barnes & Noble Warwick will host a recognition ceremony in April honoring the winner and runners up. The winner than is entered into the regional contest and the five regional winning teachers will each receive a $500 Barnes & Noble Gift Card. The winner of the national “Barnes & Noble Teacher of the Year” award will receive $5,000 and the winning teacher’s school will receive $5,000 as well. For additional information, contact crm2159@bn.com.

ZooCamp: Winter Adventures (Ages 6-10) @ Roger Williams Park Zoo
Feb 19 @ 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

Instead of keeping the kids inside during February school vacation, send them to Adventures ZooCamp where your child will be engaged in a full day of crafts, hands-on and inquiry driven activities, encounters with wild animal ambassadors and even bundled-up tours of the Zoo where each camper will get a chance to feed the goats in the Alex and Ani Farmyard. During this camp explore winter in biomes all around the world. From the frozen arctic to the heat of the desert, no matter what the climate – campers will have fun! Please note: Only campers that attend all 5 days will receive a t-shirt and ZooCamp Access Pass.
