Let's get ready to read this summer! From June 8 to July 31, students who read 1000 minutes or more in myON will have the chance to win prizes. The top ten student readers will receive a yard sign and a back-to-school swag bag. Campuses will get rewards too, as the top reading campus at each level will win a Kona ice party and books for their library. 

Each week of the contest will be a new reading adventure with activities and recommended reading. Please see the myON summer reading page for details. Remember: if you read offline, be sure to log into myON with WiFi so your activity is counted.
