Jan. 7, 2014 — For young people who love to read, possibly the only thing better than a trip to Bookmans is to win its school challenge contest.

The top 10 finalists for the used book store’s third annual Bookmans School Challenge were announced today, and beginning Feb. 10, two videos will be posted each day at, @bookmans on Twitter, and the Bookmans Facebook page.

The public’s top pick will be voted on through the Facebook page, from Feb. 17 to 23. The top three finalists will be announced Feb. 24.

Phoenix metro area schools in the top 10 are Melvin E. Sine Elementary (Kindergarten through 8th Grade), Mountain Sky Middle School, Irving Elementary School, and Dobson High School.

Tucson area schools in the top 10 are Safford K-8 Magnet International Baccalaureate World School, John E. White Elementary School, Pueblo Magnet High School, Santa Rita High School, and Holladay Elementary Magnet School.

The semifinalists will now move to phase two of the challenge by entering a short video for public viewing that showcases their schools’ academic, fine arts and performing arts, and community building programs, all competing for a total of $21,000 cash.
