Wow! We are just one week into the Read 1,000,001 Minutes Challenge, you’ve surprised and shocked us all!
We knew Jefferson County liked reading. We knew you liked Summer Reading. But clearly, we didn’t set the bar high enough.
So, we’re raising the bar – let’s go for 10 million minutes!
Your enthusiasm is creating an infectious energy throughout the county and we want to keep it going!
The Summer Reading Challenge runs through August 14. Get your family and friends to sign up. Challenge them to read, log minutes, and win prizes! We award our first 98 prize winners this week, with more than 2 million dollars in donated prizes to give away throughout the summer.
Weekly prize drawings, ranging from movie tickets to Karate Birthday Parties, from martial arts lessons to concert tickets, from Rheinlander’s Bakery Cakes to free meals at area restaurants are just waiting to be given away to anyone who is registered and logging time each week.
And, to keep things interesting, we’re add surprizes. We have secret “reading shoppers” in the community looking for readers. Get caught reading and you could win!
Thanks for playing, and let’s hit that 10 million minute goal!
