Bruins prize drawing – how, who, and when!

We are pleased to announce that the Boston Bruins, our statewide sponsors, will be donating raffle prizes as they have in recent years. The raffle will be open to all Summer Reading child and teen participants.

Once again, each library is responsible for choosing participants they believe would like to enter into the raffle. We will be accepting names based on age levels AND you can submit up to FIVE names per age level!

Here are the age levels and prizes:

Children ages 5-7:
5 winners will receive a Brad Marchand Puck
3 winners will receive a team-signed Jersey
1 Grand Prize Winner will receive: Opportunity to greet members of the Boston Bruins as they get ready to take the ice during a Boston Bruins Home Game

Children Ages 8-11:
5 winners will receive a Brad Marchand Puck
3 winners will receive a team-signed Jersey
1 Grand Prize Winner will receive: Opportunity to sit on the bench during pre-game warm-ups of a Boston Bruins Home Game

Children/Teens 12 and older:
5 winners will receive a Brad Marchand Puck
3 winners will receive a team-signed Jersey
1 Grand Prize Winner will receive: Opportunity to ride on the zamboni during the intermission of a Boston Bruins Home Game

It is up to you, the librarians, to select the worthy candidates. You can choose the most improved reader, the participant who read the most title/minutes/chapters, or use your own criteria to select your submissions.

Once you have selected your candidates, fill out the official form at

http://www.masslibsystem.org/boston-bruins-raffle/

This fall, winners will be chosen randomly from the submitted batch of names. The deadline to submit names is Wednesday, September 5, 2012.

Please remember that this raffle is only open to libraries who are participating in the statewide summer reading themes, Dream Big – READ! and Own the Night. If your branch library(ies) are program participants, they may enter Five names per age group as well.

While the Bruins are very generous with prizes and funding, not everyone who has their name submitted will win a prize.

You will be contacted in the fall if your library has a winner. The above survey link should not be given to the public.

Once again, thank you for your continued hard work on Summer 2012! Please remember to contact us with any Bruins related questions.

Sincerely,

Sarah Sogigian, MLS
Susan Babb, MLS
