Read Your Way to the Big Game!

Your child’s ability to read is a critical predictor of educational and lifelong success. Help establish a strong literacy foundation for your child and support Carolina & Clemson’s championship traditions by participating in the South Carolina Department of Education’s 2018 Read Your Way to the Big Game contest.

All public, private, and homeschool students in pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade who read six books will qualify to win tickets to the Clemson vs. South Carolina game on November 24. Once students have completed their readings, they should turn in the list of books read to their teacher. Winners will receive four tickets and pre-game sideline passes to the Clemson vs. South Carolina game.  The contest is now closed.

Read to Succeed

The Read to Succeed Act is a strong initiative that focuses on mastery of reading skills before students advance to fourth grade. Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, third-grade students who are not reading on grade level may be retained. Retention can provide students with severe reading difficulties the additional time they need to gain the necessary reading skills to be successful in fourth grade and beyond.
