Parents, get your kids excited about reading this summer with First Lady Crissy Haslam’s Read to be Ready Summer Reading Competition, a challenge to read the most number of minutes over the summer break!
All Tennessee children, from rising Kindergarteners to rising 4th Grade students, are eligible to track their number of minutes read from June 1 – July 27 to compete for Tennessee’s Top 100 Summer Readers. Students will qualify to win a Top 100 Reader spot based on a lottery system. Students must read a minimum of 2,000 minutes to be eligible for an entry into the lottery, and will gain one additional entry for each 1,000 extra minutes read past 2,000 minutes. There's lots of information available at the First Lady's website, www.tn.gov/firstlady, including reading log forms, guidelines, and FAQs.
