Summer Reading: Spark a Reaction

If you haven't already signed up for the Teen Summer Reading Program, what are you waiting for? Upon Sign-up, you'll receive a Game Sheet to keep track of how much you read. If you complete the program (15 hours of reading) by August 15, you'll receive a Greenville Drive ticket, a coupon for a free Jumbo Jack Burger, an entry into the weekly drawings, and an entry in the Grand Prize Drawing for an iPad. The winner of the iPad will be announed on August 18.

How do I earn entries? Earn one entry in our Week 1 drawing just for signing-up. After that, earn one entry for every summer program attended, one for each book review completed, and one if you complete the Teen Summer Reading Program (15 hours of reading).
