The annual Elementary School Trophy Challenge is back!
What is the Trophy Challenge?
It is a contest between all Henrico County Public School elementary schools. The schools with the highest percentage of students who meet the Summer Reading Club's reading goal get a big shiny trophy with a brass plate engraved with their school's name to display during the school year.
How does it work?
- Henrico County Public School elementary students sign up for the Summer Reading Club.
- They log the number of days they read throughout the summer.
- The school with the highest percentage of finishers (having read at least 20 days) will receive a trophy to keep on display for one year.
We will track progress during the summer and share this with the club participants through email and other methods. We hope that with this added incentive, we can encourage even more students to participate and finish the summer reading club, and experience the joy of reading as a lifelong pursuit.
In addition to the trophies, each winning school will receive a Barnes & Noble gift card valued at $50 for the school library.
Check back often to see how your school is doing!
Registration updates will take place on June 15 and June 29.
Progress updates will take place weekly, every Friday between July 6 and August 24.
The final announcement of the Trophy Challenge winners will take place on Tuesday September 4!
