Rep. Schneider Announces “Brad’s Bookworms” Reading Program for Elementary Students
As Back to School season approaches, Congressman Brad Schneider (IL-10) today announced the launch of “Brad’s Bookworms,” a program to encourage reading and learning for elementary-age students and their families.
Children participating in the program are asked to read 20 books with help from parents, grandparents, older siblings, or other family members between September 1 and December 31, 2017, and track their progress toward this goal. Young people who meet the 20 book goal will be invited with their families to a recognition ceremony with Congressman Schneider in Spring 2018 to celebrate their achievement.
Students are also invited to take part in a contest to design a bookmark, and copies of the winning bookmark will be distributed to all children who complete the 20 book goal.
Questions? Please call our Lincolnshire Office at (847) 383-4870.
More information about the Brad’s Bookworms program, including links to the reading log sheet, bookmark contest template, and parent permission slip is available on Congressman Schneider’s website.
