-A A +A

Education > 2015 summer reading challenge is focus of Martinez’s trip

By Tris DeRoma

As the governor says, “You can’t win if you don’t read.”
Gov. Susana Martinez showed up at Aspen Elementary School Friday to tout the state’s summer reading program the “2015 New Mexico True Summer Reading Challenge.”
New Mexico children ages 5-12 are eligible to participate, from any type of schooling situation, whether that’s public, private, charter or home school.
Participants in the contest must read 12 books by July 31 as well a write an essay about “Why I Love New Mexico.”
Students then need to submit their lists. Students with the best essays are eligible for top prizes, which are pretty sweet. Those prizes include a trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, a family fun day at the New Mexico State Fair or a balloon ride with Martinez and First Gentleman Franco.

Martinez arrived at the school a little past noon Friday and met up with Aspen Elementary School’s principal, Kathryn Vandenkieboom and students playing outside at recess, where she took “selfies” with the students and talked with them about what they were doing in school.
