Giveaways, Contests, & Grants from Scholastic

I can finally share something with all of you, as I just figured out how to share a webpage on my post. :) (For my future reference), I right-clicked on the webpage, chose view page source, and then copied and pasted the html code it provided onto my post. If anyone knows of a better way, let me know.

There are some great giveaways, contests, and grants here. Definitely check out #7. There are all sorts of free labels to download and print here. I hope you can find something here that interests you!!
