Read For 15 Challenge

As part of Nunavut Literacy Week, our school took part in the "Read for 15" Challenge, an event organized by the Nunavut Literacy Council. I'm not sure how how many years this has been done but it has occurred annually at least for the 6 years I have taught in the territory. At any rate, we had 162 students and community members participate this year. Nunavut partners with the other two northern territories in a challenge to see who can garner the most participants. Nunavut was dethroned last year by the Northwest Territories but hopefully we will recapture the crown this year.
