The Eastern Washington Area Health Education Center (EWAHEC) is happy to continue the Eagles Read! Summer Reading program for the summer of 2019! This program is generously funded by support from the Washington State Department of Health. Eagles Read! is available to students in kindergarten through 8th grade who live in rural areas of Eastern Washington. Students are required to read 20 minutes per day for 30 days over the summer. Students who complete the program send in their journal and receive an EWU Eagles hat and a certificate.
1. How do I get a journal for my child to participate?
Please check at your local library. If your library doesn’t have them, they aren’t participating, but that doesn’t mean you can’t! email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a journal and we will mail one to you.
2. My child doesn’t read yet. Can we read to them and get the credit?
As long as the child is entering kindergarten, they are welcome to participate. We encourage a love of reading!
3. How do we claim the hat and certificate?
The journal is a self-mailer. You will tape the 3 sides and send it to us, no stamp required. We will ship out hats and certificates on a monthly basis.
4. When will we get the hat and certificate?
Your hat and certificate will arrive within a month of finishing the program. We will be ordering hats and certificates in batches to make sure we have enough for everyone.
5. How much does Eagles Read! cost?
Eagles Read! is complimentary, thanks to a grant from the Washington State Department of Health. A love of reading will pay dividends across your child’s life.
