United We Read Challenge

Will you accept the United WE READ Challenge?

United Way and our partners through the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading are asking children and families in central and northeastern Connecticut to pledge to read for at least 20 minutes every day throughout the Summer.

Join us for the largest reading challenge in central and northeastern Connecticut! We are mobilizing our region to support our goal of building a community of readers to help ensure every child has the opportunity to succeed in school.

It’s free and easy to join. This challenge is designed to complement your family’s other summer reading requirements.

How to Participate

• Register for yourself, your classroom or the whole family.
• Hold a friendly competition between children, friends or classmates to see who can read the most minutes.
• You can read anything, anywhere with anyone.
