Open to any student using the Cover Story curriculum

Throughout the school year, we host giveaways and contests for our Cover Story students on themes related to the content of the curriculum. These events conclude with a fun-filled live webinar with “Mr. and Mrs. S.” that students and parents can attend online.

Contests are announced via e-newsletter. Please note that our newsletters are solely to keep you informed. There are no third-party advertisements, and we do not sell our email lists.

Contests are annual, but details are subject to change.
