More than 100 children’s books were given away to students participating in the fourth annual Book Bingo hosted during Read Across America week on Thursday, March 5, at O’Neal Elementary School. 

“Every kid leaves with a book,” noted Ashley Robertson, O’Neal librarian, who helped organize the event. The books were paid for by Mossy Oak Properties/Mozark Realty, which also supplied a free Mules T-Shirt for each participant. Chartwells provided the snacks and beverages. 

This year’s grand prize winner during the final blackout round of bingo was second grader Elena Butler, who received an eight-book hardcover series of “Dog Man” by Dav Pikey, creator of “Captain Underpants.” 

Book Bingo, along with the elementary school’s popular Movie Night, was established by the Bright Futures Site Council during the 2016/17 school year in an effort to put on additional functions for families to participate in, according to Principal Dr. Amy Dill.
