Stepping Toward Those Awesome Prizes for #KidlitSummerSchool 2015!

KLSS 2015 BadgeYou’ve read the posts! You’ve done the worksheets! You’ve attended the webinars and #30mdares! Good for you! And even if you didn’t get to ALL of those great events, you’ve already received some of the best that Kidlit Summer School has to offer! Know what would be the icing on the cake, the cherry on top, the cat’s pajamas?


So let’s take those first steps toward prize distribution..

 The 30mdare prize: Here’s how you enter!

Rebecca Petruck is giving away a 20-page critique and follow-up phone call to one student who completed at least five of the #30mdares. Because we didn’t want issues with time zones or work schedules you could have done the dares whenever it suited you. We’ll use an honor system for the contest! Fill out the form by Saturday, August 22 if you were able to do at least 5 of the prompts. We’ll use the Random Number Generator to select a winner from those who filled out the form. The lucky winner will be announced next week. Thanks to Rebecca for organizing the outstanding dares!

The Perfect Attendance Award

The blue-star-thumbperfect attendance award grand prize is given to one person who commented on each FACULTY POST here on the blog within the first 24 hours of it going up. We asked those who think they are eligible to leave a comment on Sunday’s post. We got a lot of comments! Thanks to ALL of YOU who achieved perfect attendance. Using the Random Number Generator at Random.ORG, Heather Pierce Stigall was selected as the winner of the Perfect Attendance Award! Congratulations Heather.

The adorable crocheted chick by Summer Schooler Juli Cavney:

Jen Garrett. Congratulations Jen!

The TOTE BAG with logo designed by Joyce Wan: 

We drew a name from those who commented that they shared the badge and banner when it came out. The winner will receive a tote bag with the #KidlitSummerSchool 2015 logo on it. The winner of that drawing is Jan Annino! Congratulations Jan!


We will use the random number generator to select a winner for these. It will take a few weeks to sort it all out, but we’ll be announcing those soon!

Giveaways associated with guest blogger posts. These are contributed by the guest bloggers themselves and will be given away to someone who commented on that particular post. Thanks to our awesome faculty. Their guests posts were prize enough, but if you commented on one of these posts, you could be eligible for one of these prizes:

Grand-prize giveaways for registrants and pre-registrants: These, like the brainstorming session with Kami and Sudipta, and the Summer School Cafe-Press bling pack will be drawn from all who put their names in the registration or pre-registration pool! Look for those winners to be announced right here on the blog. 

#NerdyChicksDraw: Our Nerdy Chicks Drawing Contest has ended, yet stay tuned for a Gallery of all of your amazing creations soon on the website! The winners will be picked by an industry professional and be added to our cafe press store! Also, they will receive a prize pack with their own design on it.Thank you for all of your entries! You are certainly some amazingly talented Chicks!

Soooo…. Lots of good stuff here and more to come. Thanks to all who participated in Kidlit Summer School 2015 – faculty and students alike!

    I’m still working my way through some of the webinars, and lessons, but all of those I was able to read and work on were awesome. I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating that I (and many others, I’m sure) are grateful that everything will be here for a few more months so we can work through things (or review!) at our own pace.
