Phantoms Charities Summer Reading Challenge

Phantoms Charities Summer Reading Program

The Summer Reading Challenge is a Phantoms Charities initiative that encourages local children to read books for 20 minutes a day over the summer.  This opportunity is for elementary students attending a Lehigh Valley based school district in grades K-6 during the 2020-2021 school year.

Read Books

Just like you exercise your body, it is important to exercise your brain.  It is recommended that you read for 20 minutes a day (whether you are reading alone, reading to someone else, or being read to).  If your summer vacation from school is 12 weeks long, and you read for just 20 minutes every day, that’s 1,680 minutes of reading.  Wow!

Earn Prizes

The Summer Reading Challenge is fun, easy, and FREE!  Read books that are level appropriate for 20 minutes a day over the summer, submit the online form, and be entered to earn two tickets to a Phantoms game at the PPL Center in Allentown for the 2020-2021 season.

Appreciate Family Bonding

Read with your family!  You can bring a book just about everywhere – in the car, on a plane, at the park, even to the grocery store.  Reading together is great way to create lasting memories while building social-emotional, concentration, and listening skills.

Do Well in School

The more you read, the better your foundational reading skills become.  Your math skills can even improve, too!  Your brain, and your teacher, will thank you later.

The Challenge closes August 28, 2020.  To enter, fill out the form below!
