Seattle Seahawks Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program


For the month of August, we invited all elementary school-aged kids to grab a book and participate in the Seahawks Summer Reading Program. While the program has reached its end we continue to encourage your child to read 20 minutes a day as they move into the school year. Literacy skills are recognized as one of the strongest predictors of academic success. Together we can encourage our future leaders to find joy in reading and learning.

 We had over 425 participants helping us reach over 170,000 minutes read! Winners will be selected and notified in early September. Thank you for all that participated!
