The big game is over and so is the reading competition.

All students at Laurens Middle School had the opportunity to participate in the 2018 Read Your Way to the Big Game Contest, which is sponsored by the S.C. Department of Education.

In addition to being entered in a statewide contest, students who turned in their reading logs were also entered into a drawing at LMS with prizes being presented by school librarian Kathy Butler.

The school winners were sixth-grade student Gemini Snider (right), who was reading for USC, and eighth-grade student Mallory Stover, who read for Clemson (left).
