Parents & Community - Events - Read Across America


Read Across America Sub-Sections

Read Across America is an annual reading motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of beloved children's author Dr. Seuss.  Although March 2 is officially designated as “Read Across America Day,” Read Across America events can occur on any date because motivating children to read throughout the year is an important factor in student achievement and creating lifelong successful readers.  Each year, KEA budgets funds to support Read Across America events sponsored by KEA districts or KEA locals.  In addition to the primary purpose of promoting child literacy, KEA will judge grant requests based on the following criteria:  the degree to which the activity includes participation by multiple categories of KEA membership and encourages cooperation among Active, Retired and Student members; developing strong KEA locals; the number of children expected to participate; the level of publicity and community outreach expected; and other criteria that may be established by KEA’s Read Across America committee.

KEA district associations, KEA-SP chapters or KEA-R applicants are eligible for only one award per year with the maximum grant amount of $500 per year. The Read Across America grant application deadline is September 15, 2016.  See KEA Board Policy for additional guidelines.
