JUNEAU -- Children in grades one through eight are invited to participate in the Summer Reading Challenge and win a prize at the Dodge County Fair. All they need to do is record the books they have read throughout the summer on a summer reading challenge form.
Youths must track their reading progress and bring their record sheets to the youth building office at the Dodge County Fair Aug. 14-18. They may read five, 10, 15 books or more and everybody wins. Youths who read at least 15 books receive a coupon for a free malt at the fair. Those reading more books receive a bigger prize. There is a limit of one per person. Children do not have to be a 4-H member to participate.
The 2019 Summer Reading Challenge is sponsored by the Dodge County Extension, Dodge County 4-H Leaders Association, Dodge County Dairy Promotion Committee and Dodge County Farm Bureau along with area businesses.
The summer reading challenge form is available at https://dodge.extension.wisc.edu or by calling the Dodge County UW-Extension Office at 920-386-3790.
