2017 SummerFest Basics

Here are the basics for the reading incentive portion of SummerFest for 2017.

Start registration:  Monday, May 1

Start:  Thursday, June 1

End Monday, July 31

People can participate with paper trackers or online.  All information must be put into the online system by 11:59 PM on July 31.

We are utilizing Read Squared as our online system again this year.

The link will be at tscpl.org/summerfest.

THE COMMUNITY GOAL is 3,000,000 (three million) minutes.

Changes:

20 minutes per day over 60 days of summer is 1,200 minutes (20 hours) of reading.g

  • This supports I Read 20, which many schools use.
  • This creates consistent messaging all year round.

The trackers for ages 3-adult are virtually the same, a calendar format.  The one difference is that adults do not get incremental prizes.

  • This makes distribution easier.
  • There is less confusion because directions are the same for each.
  • It promotes the idea that reading habits are life-long.
