Welcome to the mini-challenges for the October 2010 edition of Dewey’s Readathon.
We have a diverse range of mini challenges available. Participate in all of them, or pick and choose the challenges you like! Whichever way you choose to participate, the most important thing is to have fun. We’re posting a schedule so that you can plan your day according to which challenges most interest you.
Many thanks in advance to everyone who volunteered to host a mini challenge this year, and to everyone who has come up with prizes associated with their challenge. Also, a HUGE thanks to the Mini Challenge Team: Sheila, Ashley, Jennifer, & Marg. They put in a lot of work compiling and determining the schedule and coordinating with all of the hosts. Help us give them a HUGE round of applause!
Each of these challenges will be open for three hours, and are open to all participants of the Read-A-Thon:
