Hi! I'm trying to find teens and tweens to join an online reading challenge that begins on November 17. All participants have to do is write a weekly blog entry on the site, about whatever they are reading. At the end, you get raffle tickets (the amount is the same as the amount of blog entries you've postes.) At this point, you can even make suggestions for prizes you want.
I thought of this idea because I love participating in online blogger challenges and I wanted a way to introduce kids and teens to blogging and reading. I got a whole bunch of young adult authors to donate prizes... but now I'm having trouble finding teenagers and tweens to join! The schools won't spread the news about it because of privacy regulations, most message boards consider it spam, etc. So I'd love it if you'd join, and get some of your friends involved too!
The contest is in a secured social network, where each person has to be approved to join. You never have to (and never should) give out any personal info other than your first name... although if you win a raffle prize, you'll need a mailing address, but you can use your school address, a relative's address, etc if you are worried about your privacy.
For more info, please visit http://seasons-readings.blogspot.com, or come straight to the social networking site at http://readingchallenge.mixxt.com.
I hope to see you there!
