Tampa Bay Lightning

In Session for 2013:

Go on a Reading Power Play!

The Lightning and Bay Area schools are teaming up to make reading the goal! Score With Reading presented by Bright House Networks encourages first grade students to read outside of their classroom at least 20 minutes per day, over a six week period and to keep “score” of their minutes read. This program motivates students to become "all-star" readers with reading milestones and the ability to win prizes! Teachers are also incentivized for registering and participating in the program.

Students that read 20 minutes a day for 20 days (400 total minutes) by the end of the program will earn a FREE Lightning home game ticket voucher and sticker. Students that read 20 minutes a day for 40 days (800 total minutes) by the end of the program will also earn an additional FREE ticket voucher to an upcoming Lightning home game (for the total of up to 2 ticket vouchers if students complete both incentive levels). All classrooms that go above and beyond the goal of 800 minutes per student, with full class participation, will be entered to win a classroom visit by ThunderBug or another Lightning celebrity. Bolts forward No. 26 Martin St. Louis and ThunderBug will be on a reading "power play," stressing the importance of literacy throughout this campaign.
