Student reviews of books are sought by The Maysville Ledger Independent as part of its Young Readers Review program, in conjunction with NIE, Newspapers In Education series.
Submissions are encouraged by school age children in the following counties: Mason, Bracken, Fleming, Lewis and Robertson counties in Kentucky and Adams and Brown counties in Ohio.
Students will read a book, then write a brief summary in 150 words or less. Reviews will be randomly selected and published on Wednesdays in The Ledger Independent. The review must include:
• Paragraph 1: Information about the student, including name, school, grade and reading interests.
• Paragraph 2: Title and author of book being reviewed, with enough information on characters, setting, and short overview that will draw the audience’s interest, but not give away too much information.
• Paragraph 3: One or two sentences encouraging future readers to read this book.
The concept of the Young Readers Review is for the author to write down his/her thoughts and words about a book they have read. Submissions are published in the B Section of The Ledger Independent during the school year. Entries may be brought to the Ledger Independent office at 120 Limestone Street, Maysville; emailed to Sally Teegarden (in a Word Document format) at firstname.lastname@example.org; or mailed to Jennifer Marshall, Reader Review Entry, P.O. Box 518, Maysville, KY 41056.
