GCS Students Can Earn Prizes for Holiday Reading

GCS is once again encouraging students to continue reading during the winter break with some exciting incentives. All elementary, middle and high school students who read at least 300 minutes will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of 4 iPad minis or a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card. 

In addition, elementary and middle school students who read at least 300 minutes during winter break can receive a complimentary ticket to the UNCG men’s basketball game on January 28 against Furman. Family members of qualifying students can purchase discounted tickets for $5 to the game. All tickets must be secured through the UNCG ticket office by Thursday, January 26. Information about how to secure these tickets will be included on the certificate, which will be given to the students who qualify.

Students must read a total of 300 minutes or more to be eligible for the prizes. To be eligible for incentives, all reading logs should be turned into Media Specialists by January 10, 2017. Winners will be announced by January 20, 2017.

GCS Reads 30 and the holiday reading challenge are part of the district’s overall effort to boost literacy. For more information, click here.
