The winners of the Brentwood School 6 Word Story Contest with The Perkiomen School were announced on twitter last Friday morning. The librarians enjoyed slowly tweeting out all the winners, @bwslibrary tweeted the Perkiomen School winners, and @perklibrarian tweeted the Brentwood School winners.
The idea for this contest came from Kate Hammond, Librarian at Perkiomen School, who sent out her idea for a multi-school 6 word story contest via the listserv for AISL, the Association of Independent School Librarians. Ms. Abarbanel responded, and the 6 word story contest was born. Brentwood School community members competed against each other, with 223 entries. A committee from Perkiomen School judged our entries as we judged theirs.
We had 3 faculty winners, 3 middle school winners, and 5 upper school winners from each school. The results were tweeted (see the twitter stream here).
Congratulations to the Winners!
