The youngest members of the KU Alumni Association—kids who are members of Future Jayhawks— were invited to participate in our second annual Summer Reading Challenge this past July.
After all the numbers were tallied, this year’s efforts topped last year:
- 170 kids have turned in their reading sheets, compared to 141 last year.
- The youngest Jayhawks from birth to age seven read a total of 4,433 books.
- Older kids from ages 8-18 read a whopping 868 hours during the month, more than doubling last year’s hours.
Members received a certificate and a Jayhawk gift after turning in their reading sheet.
If your Future Jayhawk completed the summer reading challenge, don’t forget to send in their sheet! To sign up your kids, grandkids, nieces or nephews for the program so they can participate in future activities like this, visit www.kualumni.org/futurejayhawks.
