DALLAS MAVERICKS READING CHALLENGE
1/20/2023 9:00 am
Our Jackson Jaguars are already encouraged to read 20 minutes a day, why not log that time to earn badges with the Dallas Mavericks!? The Mavs are challenging kids and teens, ages 0-18, to read or be read to, at least 20 minutes a day. Earn badges for completing fun MAVS activities and for every 10 days you read, up to 40 days. Read 40 days or more for a MAVS SWAG BAG and a grand prize entry. The more you read the better your chances of winning the grand prize!
Jackson parents can use this challenge as an opportunity to spend quality time with family as well. Take a break and grab a book with the kid/s, find a new reading spot outdoors, at the library, in a park, wherever!
