SIT DOWN AND STOP ACHIEVING: Library director says 9-year-old should ‘step aside’ to let others win reading contest
A 9-year-old who has won five straight reading contests at a New York library now has a new challenger to his throne – the library’s director, who says the young reader “hogs” the contest prizes each year and should “step aside.”
If someone else wants to win, they need to beat him. PERIOD.
“Other kids quit because they can’t keep up,” Marie Gandron said, adding that she considered changing the rules of the contest so prizes are given to children whose names are pulled out of a hat instead of reading the most books.
Future Free-Stuff voters.
