We are happy to announce the winners of the Marvel Readers Contest that took place from 20 July, 2018 until 30 September, 2018. We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for participating!
The winners have been chosen with the help of Marc Helgesen, professor at Miyagi Gakuin Women’s University, Sendai and one of the founders and former chairperson of the Extensive Reading Foundation. It was a tough decision as all writing and presentation submissions were excellent and well thought through. Each prize winner has been picked after a thorough evaluation of various criteria.

Ms. Erica FUKUI
Selected Title: Marvel’s The Avengers
Marc Helgesen’s Comment:
”I like the attention you are paying to the team effort and the fact they all (and we all as humans) have different strengths and skills. Maybe that is one of the most important themes from books like the Avengers.
And I am very impressed that this was written by an elementary school student. I hope you continue reading and learning English. Best wishes for great success.”

Ms. Yuko SAITO
Selected Title: Marvel’s Captain America
Marc Helgesen’s Comment:
”Good presentation style. The point about the culture gap, related to things like gesture, facial expressions and jokes, is important. I like the way she tied herself to Capt. America’s line, “I can do this all day.”
We will soon send out the prizes to all the winners.
Thanks again to everyone participating in this campaign!
Watch out for another Marvel Readers related campaign which we are planning to run between the middle of November and the end of January next year! We are looking forward to your participation!
