2016 Elementary School Trophy Challenge

The annual Elementary School Trophy Challenge is back!

What is the Trophy Challenge?

It is a contest between all Henrico County's Elementary schools. The schools with the highest percentage of students who meet the Summer Reading Club's reading goal get a big shiny trophy with a brass plate engraved with their school's name to display during the school year.

How does it work?

  1. Henrico County Public School elementary students sign up for the Summer Reading Club.
  2. They log the number of days they read throughout the summer.
  3. The school with the highest percentage of finishers (having read at 20 minutes on at least 20 days) will receive a trophy to keep on display for one year. 

We will track progress during the summer and share this with the club participants through email and other methods.  We hope that with this added incentive, we can encourage even more students to participate and finish the summer reading club, and experience the joy of reading as a lifelong pursuit. 

Schools By Library

We've changed how the trophies will be awarded this year. Schools will be grouped by their nearest Henrico County Public Library location. That means more trophies!!

In addition to the trophies, each winning school will receive a Barnes & Noble gift card valued at $50 for the school library.

An afternoon with Shakespeare!

William Shakespeare died 400 years ago on April 23, 1616 and many people and organizations are celebrating his life this year in many ways. We celebrated it by going back in time and bringing him to 2016 so we could meet him and get to know him better.

We've got proof! The video below is from April 23, 2016 at the Tuckahoe Library. Take a look!
