To gain a little more interest, $650 in grand prize money will be added to the Read Across South Dakota challenge. They will be split up into four categories with prize money for the top reader(s) in each category:

  • Individual - $50
  • Family - $100
  • Organization - $200
    • Up to 30 people
    • Could include banks, preschools, daycares, businesses, etc.
  • Communities - $300
  • 30+ people
  • Could include school districts, a chamber-run event, libraries getting the community involved.
  • This prize money is for ACTUAL BOOKS READ. Does not include bonus books from the challenges.
Another prize will be added to incentivize the challenges we will be throwing out there (read to an animal, read in an unlikely place, etc.). We want more of our participants to post on Facebook, so we will be giving out an additional $50 OR $100 for the reader(s) who participate in the most challenges. 
Individual/Family - $50
Organization/Community - $100
