About the BookSpring Readathon
The BookSpring Readathon is a 15 year tradition, spreading the love of reading to kids and families throughout Austin and Central Texas. During the two-week Readathon period, students read as many minutes as they can, collect donations from family and friends, and win great prizes!
It’s all about kids reading so that other kids can have their very own books. Through the Readathon, our student readers help BookSpring fill bookshelves with wonderful children’s books, while promoting a love of reading with our kids and families in need in 80,000 homes throughout Austin and Central Texas.
Here are the details:
- Individual prizes are awarded by dollars raised and minutes read.
- Class and school prizes are awarded by dollars raised and minutes read.
- Sponsorship are readily available to readers not able to raise money.
- Schools who serve 50% or more Title 1 students can use funds raised towards BookSpring program fees.
Sponsorship for the Readathon from individuals, community organizations, foundations and businesses are welcome and provide business exposure to up to 20,000 families a year. Please contact Andrea Angelo at (512) 472-1791 x 104 for more information.
