Clash of the Classrooms
Registration now open for Clash of the Classrooms! Contest runs from February 5 to March 8.
Chatham-Kent and Lambton County elementary and secondary school classes are invited to participate in the 2nd annual 'Clash of the Classrooms' Reading Challenge hosted in partnership with Chatham-Kent Public Library (CKPL) and Lambton County Library.
The challenge runs from February 5 to March 8 and is open for classes K-3, 4-8, and secondary schools. Prizes will be awarded to the top elementary, secondary, and homeschool groups. Register by visiting lambton.beanstack.org.
New this year, the municipalities are going head-to-head! The top elementary school and top high school across both regions will get their name added to the Clash Cup! The trophy will be displayed at the library location closest to the school.
CKPL would like to extend a special thank you to the Rotary Club of Chatham for sponsoring the Chatham-Kent portion of 'Class of the Classrooms'.
