Information about Summer Challenge To Go Bags

To complete this summer challenge you need to read (or be read to) a total of 8 hours between June 1st - August 16th. If you read 15 minutes a day, 4 times a week, you will complete this challenge before the end of July! You can do it!

Every time your total reading minutes logged reaches another hour (up to 8 hours) you earn a virtual reading badge and a cool reading reward like a glitter wand or a dragon glider.  Take a look at the list of all the reading rewards for this challenge!

Make sure you log every single minute you spend reading, no matter what you read - books, ebooks, graphic novels, comics, audio books, and magazines all count!

You can also earn virtual badges and tickets for our end of the summer special prize drawings by completing fun Imagine Your Story activities and continuing to log reading minutes after you reach the 8 hour goal. The end of the summer prize drawings include rainbow unicorn headbands, book store gift certificates, dragon Lego sets, and much more!  See a complete list of prize drawings.

You will track your progress online with our Beanstack Summer Challenge Website (website will be working starting June 1st) or by downloading the Beanstack Tracker app.

Logging reading minutes is really easy using our summer challenge app called Beanstack Tracker. The app even includes a reading timer!
