The winners of the 2013 Oregon Summer Reading Certificate contest are...

Kids 3: Fuzzy tails<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/youthsvcs/srp.certificates/kids3.pdf> (DRAFT)
Teen 3: Arrow T font<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/youthsvcs/srp.certificates/teen3.pdf> (DRAFT)

I am also pleased to announce that Governor Kitzhaber's signature will be on the summer reading certificates this year. This is the first year that a Governor has signed the Oregon Summer Reading Certificates!

Public libraries may distribute Oregon Summer Reading Certificates to children and teens who complete their library's summer reading program. Teachers, reading specialists, and school librarians may present them to students who read or listen to 10 books over the summer.

Those of you who ordered hardcopies should receive your summer reading certificates before June 1, 2013. Digital copies will be available to download and print<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/youthsvcs/oregon.srp.certificate.aspx#Download___Print_Certificates> on demand June 1 as well.

The 2013 Summer Reading Program theme is underground, the children's slogan is "Dig Into Reading!" and the teen slogan is "Beneath the Surface".  The children's summer reading art designed by Scott Nash and teen art by Duncan Long is used on these certificates with permission through Oregon public libraries' memberships to the Collaborative Summer Library Program.  The Oregon Summer Reading Certificates are made available to teachers, schools, and libraries at no cost thanks to a collaboration between the Oregon State Library, Oregon Department of Education, and Oregon Library Association.

A special 'THANK YOU' goes out to Becky Pearson, the librarian at McMinnville Public Library for designing the winning children's certificate and to the anonymous designer of the winning teen certificate.  You both did a wonderful job!
