For more information, please see the full description of the program at the Canticle Quests website.
Here is a short description of the program:
With summer upon us, many are planning how to spend their summer vacation. All too often, young people opt for making the couch and TV their best friends during their free time.
Instead they could be expanding their minds and developing their talents, talents that can help them live a much more fulfilling life.
“Canticle Quests” is a summer program that helps young people develop themselves and share their work with others. Participants read novels from authors who have contributed to the project and then create works of art, writing, music, and more in order to earn points.
The points gain them entries into a final drawing with prizes provided by local authors and businesses. The best submitted works will also be showcased on the website for all to enjoy.
To put it in simplest terms:
WHO: All people going into 5th – 12th grade
WHAT: A summer reading/activity program with a chance to be recognized and win prizes.
WHERE: Open to everyone in the U.S. and Canada.
WHEN: June 7th – September 15th 2010 (You may sign up before the official start)
WHY: Because Summer is too precious to waste
