Schools sweeten reading challenge

-A A +A

Education > LANL, other entities offer Chamber Checks for students

By Tris DeRoma

The Los Alamos School Board and Los Alamos Public Schools have added a little more incentive for students to participate in some summer reading.
Thanks to a little help from the community, children participating in the “New Mexico True Summer Reading Challenge” will have some extra prizes to look forward to once they reach the July 31 deadline.
The idea came from a recent Los Alamos school board meeting, where school officials and the board discussed adding some extra prizes for the students who participate.
As a result of that meeting, as well as conversations with the county, the students can look forward to more than $5,000 worth of extra prizes, thanks to the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation, LANL Foundation and the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
The prizes will come in the form of “Chamber Checks,” that winners can use in local businesses.
For its part, the board also made a motion to contribute up to $1,000 to the fund. The Los Alamos National Laboratory foundation contributed $1,500, LANL itself contributed $1,000, the Los Alamos Commerce and Development Corporation contributed $1,000 and Los Alamos County contributed $1,000.
