Saying Thanks to the 2020 National Design Team!

Saying Thanks to the 2020 National Design Team!

As their time on the National Design Team comes to a close, this year’s members share their thoughts about their experiences!

A big THANK YOU! to the 2020 National Design Team, who created many of the videos, quizzes, polls, and other cool stuff you saw on the PJ Our Way website this year!  We caught up with the team one last time to ask them a few questions about their experiences. Find out what they had to say below!

What was your favorite part of being on the Design Team?

 
Shia: We got to preview books before they came out.
 
Sylvie: I really liked having the freedom to do a video on anything and be really creative.
 
MiaSarenna: Reviewing the books was really fun. I liked the opportunity of just being on the team and getting to review books.
 
Oliver: Reading books like Noah Green Saves the World!
 
Talia: I enjoyed making the videos – plus the amount of comments I got!
 
 

What was your favorite assignment and why?

 
Mathew: I liked Beni’s War because I had read the previous book, and I just wanted to read it. Making the video was fun.
 
MiaSarenna: My favorite assignment was probably The Sasquatch Escape because it was a really good book and it was my first assignment, so that was really fun.
 
Delilah: I liked interviewing authors and reading Lucky Broken Girl the most.
 
Talia: Making the Becoming Brianna video because I got to get an advance copy!
 
 

What piece of advice would you give to next year’s team members?

 
MiaSarenna: Choose a book that you really want to read for your assignment!
 
Sylvie: Preview the book before you actually choose it. Read the summary to see if you’d want to do a project about it.
 
Katja: Remember to do the assignments!
 
Hadar: Try doing new things. I learned that making videos is great!
 
Talia: Have someone else film for you if you’re doing a video – especially if you have an expert filmmaker in the house! If you try to do everything yourself, you’re more prone to getting bloopers.
 
Danielle: Read all the book options even if you’re doing another project, because every assignment is always tied to a book.
 
Mathew: Try a lot of different editing programs, because sometimes one works better than you would have expected.
