Students host chili cook-off Saturday
POULTNEY - Students at a local private school are holding a chili cook-off Saturday to support their efforts to create a series of “little free libraries.”
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., LiHigh School - a private school serving students in sixth through 12th grades - will be serving chili, as well as offering an array of activities, from crafts to three-legged races and a doughnut-eating race.
Admission to the event is one book.
The students are collecting books for their “little free libraries” project. The libraries will resemble large birdhouses filled with books. The libraries will be placed in various locations in the area, and readers can take a book as long as they replace it with another.
The students are looking for books about cross-country travel, the environment, teen mysteries, teen and adult horror stories, teen science-fiction, historical fiction, music, animals, siblings, friendships, classic works, thrillers and books for young children.
The event will be held on the front lawn of LiHigh School, located at 307 Main St., near the entrance to Green Mountain College. For more information, visit www.lihighschool.org/blog.
