$500 Donation

January 4, 2014

Derek Robb, a second-grader at Sunset Valley Elementary School, was among nine students from throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area who were selected as winners in Price Chopper’s annual Bag Your Favorite Book contest. Derek and other winners were surprised with their prizes at school assemblies with the Sunset Valley student recognized on Dec. 20.

Derek is the contest’s second-grade winner. In all, the contest received nearly 9,000 entries.

From Sept. 9 to Oct. 18, students in elementary, middle school and junior high entered the Bag Your Favorite Book contest by designing an original cover of a book. Teachers determined if their students could pick a favorite book or an assigned book. Nine area students (one per grade between kindergarten and eighth grade) win a classroom party and a $500 donation for their school library.

Bag Your Favorite Book is one of two programs under Price Chopper’s Feeding the Reading Appetite literacy initiative. Price Chopper launched Feeding the Reading Appetite" in 2007 to provide teachers with a new way to encourage students to read more.

The other program, Party for Pages, allows classrooms to earn parties based on the number of pages they collectively read. Reading goals are established based on grade level. Classes reaching their page goal receive a classroom party. This program goes through May 2, 2014.
