Congressman Brad Schneider

Representing the 10th District of Illinois

Brad's Bookworms

Congressman Brad Schneider launched the "Brad's Bookworms" 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.
