S.C. Department of Education Kicks Off 2019 Read Your Way to the Big Game Contest

Help establish a strong literacy foundation for your child and support South Carolina & Clemson's championship traditions by participating in the South Carolina Department of Education’s Read Your Way to the Big Game contest.

The Read Your Way to the Big Game Contest is an annual reading event open to students in pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade in public, private, and home schools that encourages reading and literacy proficiency.

All pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade students who read six books will qualify to win tickets to the Clemson vs. South Carolina game on November 30. Once students have completed their readings, they should turn in the list of books read to their teacher. Two overall grand prize winners will receive four tickets and pre-game sideline passes to the Clemson vs. South Carolina game.

Schools with at least 70% student participation will be entered to win one of two $2,000 school library grants. Five participating teachers will be randomly selected to win $500 for their classroom. Two teachers and/or school library media specialists who has the best decorated bulletin board, wall or door will win $500 each for their classroom.
