Boy's Life!

Boys’ Life Reading Contest

Each year, Boy's Life sponsors a “Say Yes to Reading!” contest.  Specific details are posted on the Boy's Life website, but usually the the requirements have the boys write  a one-page report titled “The Best Book I Read This Year”.

The book can be fiction or nonfiction. But the report has to be in your own words — 500 words tops. Enter in one of these three age categories:

    * 8 years old and younger
    * 9 and 10 years old
    * 11 years old and older

Prizes are awarded for first, second, and third place in each age category.

Everyone who enters will get a free patch like the ones on this page. (And, yes, the patch is a temporary insignia, so it can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform shirt, on the right pocket. Proudly display it there or anywhere!) In coming years, you’ll have the opportunity to earn different patches.

The contest is open to all Boys’ Life readers. Be sure to include your name, address, age and grade in school on the entry.

Entries must be postmarked by Dec. 31,and must include entry information and a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
