And The #30SecondBookTalk Winner Is....

The World Championship of Book Talk videos started with 16 creative educators from several continents. They came together around a common cause and each produced a short (30 second) book talk video. The rest is history!



After over 29,000 votes were cast we have a winner. Congratulations to   and the Literacy Legends team. You can see Bronwyn
's 
#30SecondBookTalk video HERE along with the other finalists. In addition to taking home the hardware (also known as a Vince Lombooki Digital Badge), Bro
​nwyn's 
classroom will receive $500.00 in books from Scholastic...how cool is that?!

​As with all great things, this was a labor of love that could not have happened without lots of amazing people. In addition to thanking 
​everyone who participated
, we'd 
​also ​
like to recognize several educators who are empowering kids to collaborate on similar book talk video projects. Here are just a few of our favorites:

Finally, I can't post this without thanking my co-commissioner Dr. Brad Gustafson. The #30SecondBookTalk Challenge was 100% his brainchild and I'm honored that he asked me to be a part of it. Thank you, friend! You inspire me ever single day.

As we reflect back on the journey we know that it wasn't just 
​Bronwyn's class
 who won, it was the countless students and educators who got to experience the joy of reading and talking about the books they love. Congrats to 
​everyone who participated and a special shoutout to the #literacylegends who brought home the hardware once again. I've no doubt that the #leadlearners will bring it next year, but until then, happy reading everyone!
