The Ogre Awards
Davis, Enid
Knowledge Quest, v36 n5 p38-43 May-Jun 2008
In this article, the author describes the Ogre Awards, an ambitious storytelling event she developed for The Harker School during the 1996-1997 school year. Although it has evolved over these twelve years, the concept of the event is as follows: three of the four homeroom classes (averaging twenty-two students each) perform a segment of a dramatized folk tale. The fourth class acts as the hosts of the award ceremonies. The Ogre Awards (think parody of Academy Awards for fairy tale characters) is a full-scale second grade production performed in front of 650 students, faculty, administrators, and parents on the lower school campus. Here, she also describes how the Ogre Awards has enhanced the image and expanded the role of the library in the eyes of the Harker community.
