"Read Your Way to the Big Game" 2016 coming your way August 2016
The EOC is pleased to announce that "Read Your Way to the Big Game" is back! Last year, 73 percent of primary, elementary, and middle schools participated in the inaugural year of the contest. More importantly, young people in SC read nearly half a million books!
Like last year, two participating students will be chosen this year to attend the Palmetto Bowl, receiving four tickets to the game as well as sideline passes. Two schools with at least 70 percent of their students participating will receive $2,000 for their school libraries, and five participating teachers will win $500 for their classrooms. Two teachers will also be chosen as $500 winners of a contest promoting "Read Your Way" within their schools.
The official "Read Your Way to the Big Game" kits will arrive in schools the first week of August addressed to "Principal/Media Specialist". We ask that each school designate a contest coordinator to organize the submissions students give to their teachers. This year's goal is to exceed 500,000 books read!
