NEWTON, NJ - The 2015 Enthusiastic Reader awards were presented to the grade level representatives during the Board of Education meeting held Tuesday, March 24 in the Newton High School Library.

The Enthusiastic Reader contest is used to “recognize students from our area who exhibit an enthusiasm for reading and sharing books. Teachers from each of the three schools nominated enthusiastic readers and we are here to honor them this evening,” said Newton High School librarian Wendy Whipple.

Each grade level from kindergarten to Grade 12 had a representative who won the award. There were a total of 63 names submitted by teachers into the statewide portion of the contest. However, “Newton did not have any winners in the statewide contest but we were please to send along such worthy candidates,” said Whipple.
