SINA partnered with Hartford Public Library (HPL) for a REACH Book Author Contest. It’s was a great opportunity for students in grades K-5 to write and illustrate their own story with the theme of Earth Day. Earth Day is a day that was created to promote awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment.

The winners will be displayed at HPL Park Library @ the Lyric local author’s shelf.  Winning entries will receive a professionally printed copy of their book and get acknowledged at an awards ceremony.
