Summer Lovin’ Class of 2013

Although the Summer Lovin Read-a-Thon is officially over *insert super sad face*, we were so overwhelmed with all of you that we wanted to do something special to recognize the people that made the biggest impressions on us.

We put our Pink Lady heads together and voted for the people we thought deserved the most recognition.  While there were so many we could have selected, each of the ones selected below fit an unique role during Summer Lovin’. While we were at it we decided, Hey, Why not make a Yearbook just like Rydell High’s!? Why not, indeed?

Without further ado…….

We bring you
The Summer Lovin’ Class of 2013!

Yearbook2

Class-President

Head-Cheerleader    Best-Personality

Class Clown    Twitter Queen

Most Likely To Succeed    Best Sportsmanship

And to further honor those chosen, all of our Class of 2013 winners will get to choose a prize from the Summer Lovin’ Prize Page!!  (If you are one of the personalities listed above, just fill out this claim form to claim your prize!)

**************************************************

Thank you to all of the Summer Lovin’ Read-a-Thon Participants!
We hope you’ll consider joining us for our next event:
