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  ​Bronwyn Merritt  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 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!
