What IS the HIT List?

You may have heard the words “The HIT List” but aren’t quite sure what it is.  Well it is a reading initiative put forth by the Eagle Butte High School Reading Committee with the goal of creating a school culture that makes reading a desirable and worthwhile activity.

The HIT List consists of 10 books which include some Canadian authors, fiction, non-fiction and a graphic novel.  Basically there is a book for every taste and reading level.  The book titles are chosen by a group consisting of members from Eagle Butte High School, Medicine Hat High School, Crescent Heights High School, Medicine Hat Public Library and Medicine Hat College Library.

Every book that a student reads is equal to 1 entry into 2 prize draws, so if you read 1 book you have 2 chances to win a great prize…if you read all 10 books you have 20 chances.  But on top of the grand prizes we give out (which in the past have been e-readers and I-pads) we have also had many coupons from various restaurants, Mavericks tickets, Tiger tickets, gift certificates to the Mall and Cineplex so you have even more chances to win, in fact everyone who reads wins something.

So all you have to do is read a book, tell Ms. Anton, answer a couple of questions and you’re in.  It is as simple as that AND you get the enjoyment of reading an awesome book.  So head down to the Learning Commons and sign out one of the HIT List books.

  1. Hey Ms. Anton,
    I love that you are posting about the HIT list books on your blog space. Maybe in the future, students could write a blog post about the book they read to qualify for the Hit List draw! #EBHSHitList

    Blog on!

    • Fantastic idea Mrs. Kannekens. So if any student has read one of the HIT List books and writes a blog post about it they will then get 2 entries for that book. #EBHSHITList
