Read 20’s Probasco Millionaire Readers

In addition to distributing more than a million books to local families with children, Read 20 will be rewarding students who read 20 minutes every day (or at least 100 minutes each week) to be considered Read 20 Probasco Millionaire Readers – since they will have read approximately 1,000,000 words!  This applies to all grade levels, Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade.

The start date for this year is September 8, 2020

We are asking students to:

  • Keep a reading log (whatever type their teacher wants to use for daily use)

What you have to read to qualify:

  • Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade—-Read 100 minutes every week,  complete the reading log, and have it signed by parent/caregiver for 34 weeks

We are asking parents/caregivers to:

  • Sign reading logs verifying what their children have read each day outside of school hours
  • Signatures can be done electronically on a daily or weekly basis, depending on what the school’s librarian establishes

Teachers and Librarians will keep track of the total minutes read for each child and for the school

We are asking librarians to

  • Keep track of minutes through a virtual platform for the entire year by month
  • Encourage students by rewarding each grade level each quarter with a Read 20 sign and each participating student with a sticker, bookmark, or other incentive

Students and schools win:

  • Each Read 20 Probasco Millionaire Reader will receive a book bag tag and a certificate indicating they have read 1,000,000 words
  • There will be up to 10 winning schools!!!
    • The Schools with the top percentage of Probasco Millionaire Readers (reading the required amount of minutes from each learning community) wins $1,000, along with the 4 most improved schools, for their school’s library!
    • So schools have the potential to win in both categories which would result in an award of $2,000!

The deadline for completing reading logs is April 30, 2021

So READ, READ, READ!!!
