April-1-2011 — Mayor Brown released the following statement regarding this summer's reading challenge. "I am proud to announce that once again this summer I will be sponsoring my 10th Annual Reading Rules! Kids Summer Reading Challenge. The Summer Reading Challenge is a fun way to maximize the reading potential of our youth and encourage their developmental success. In previous years more than 4,000 students have completed the Summer Reading Challenge and discovered that reading can be fun, exciting and very rewarding.
Each child who successfully participates in the Summer Reading Challenge will receive an invitation to the program’s final ceremony where he or she will be given a certificate of achievement, prizes donated by area businesses and cultural organizations, and entry into a raffle for the chance to win several great prizes. Last year, prizes raffled off included computers, bicycles, video game systems and other electronic equipment, school supplies and many other items.
I encourage you to enroll your child today and wish you and your family a safe, productive, and rewarding summer."
