Over 250 students, media specialists, and teachers from 20 schools in Douglas County competed at TomeCon, the state competition that celebrates reading and creativity. The annual event took place March 12 at the University of North Georgia in Gainesville.

Groups and individuals from many schools in Douglas County won numerous state awards in events including book review blogs, service projects, book videos, fan art, infographics, and more.

The biggest winners from Douglas County were Winston Elementary, named State Chapter of the Year and State Elementary Chapter of the Year, and Douglas County High School, named State High School Chapter of the Year. Douglas County High School also won the Reading Bowl competition for the third year in a row!

To compete in the Reading Bowl at the state level, a school must qualify by being one of the top scoring schools in online reading quizzes throughout the year. In addition to Douglas County High School, which placed first, Mason Creek Middle School qualified to compete in the Reading Bowl this year and placed fourth.
