Summer Reading Challenge 2013

Last year we tried something new. The Summer Reading Challenge was a contest between all of Henrico County’s Elementary schools. The schools with the highest percentage of students who met the Summer Reading Club’s reading goal got a big shiny trophy they could display during the school year. It was quite the success so we are doing it again this year!

How does it work?

Henrico County Public School elementary students who participate in the Summer Reading Club will be tallied by school. The school with the highest percentage of finishers (having read at least 10 books, or for 10 hours) will receive a trophy to keep on display for one year. The trophy will have a brass plate on the base, engraved with the winning school’s name and the year.

Schools are grouped into three regions—North, East, and West—and three trophies will be awarded.  In addition to the trophies, each school will receive a Barnes & Noble gift card valued at $50 for the school library.

We will track progress during the summer and share this with the club participants through email and other methods.  We hope that with this added incentive, we can encourage even more students to participate and finish the summer reading club, and experience the joy of reading as a lifelong pursuit.
