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 or by calling the Dodge County UW-Extension Office at 920-386-3790.
