The State Librarian and Archivist just made us local libraries aware of another great summer reading program called Tristar Reads. Tristar Reads is an annual contest designed to encourage children across the Volunteer State to read for at least 20 minutes a day during summer break. The program runs from May 1, 2017 (Yes, we are aware that the date has already passed. Like we stated earlier, we just got this information ourselves and are passing it along to you.) through September 1, 2017 and is open to all Tennessee students in kindergarten through 12th grade. To participate in Tristar Reads, students must register at http://www.tristarreads.com and log their reading hours. Three $1,000.00 scholarships will be awarded to the students who read and log the most hours over the course of the summer. Tristar Reads will award a scholarship to one elementary school student (K-5th grade), one middle school student (6th – 8th grade). And one high school student (9th – 12th grade). Participating students must be between the ages of 5 and 18. Public, private and homeschool students are eligible to participate in Tristar Reads. All students must register to participate on the Tristar Reads website. Students under the age of 13 must have a parent or legal guardian’s permission to participate in the program and agree to terms and conditions of the program. Participants must keep track of the hours they spend reading and a list of the books they read. That information must be submitted to Tristar Reads to determine the scholarship winner. There are multiple ways students can log their books and reading hours. Students can log their hours through the Tristar Reads website (www.tristarreads.com) or submit printed and scanned log sheets by e-mail at info@tristarreads.com, or by mail o P. O. Box 198183, Nashville, TN 37219.

Happy Reading!
