Get 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.
Upon the submission of each student’s reading log packet to the Office of the First Lady by Friday, July 27, the top 100 readers will be selected by a lottery system. The top 100 readers of the Statewide Summer Read will be announced and notified by the Office of the First Lady via email on Tuesday, July 31. The students who qualify as Tennessee’s Top 100 Summer Readers will be invited, along with one parent or guardian, to a celebratory Kids State Dinner with the Governor and First Lady at the Tennessee Residence in Nashville on Sunday, August 12, 2018.
