Promote and inspire reading growth with Read to the Final Four®

To leave a lasting, positive impact on the third grade students of Metro Atlanta, the NCAA® and Atlanta Basketball Host Committee have teamed up for Read to the Final Four!

The program encourages and inspires local third graders to achieve reading growth with several participation options. The main event is an engaging, bracketed reading competition that uses a digital literacy platform, powered by Renaissance myON®, to provide access to books and track time spent reading.

Classrooms compete as a school-wide third grade reading team and advance through rounds of competition that mirror the Final Four men’s basketball tournament. The top schools will win a field trip to Fan Fest, where they will be recognized in a special award ceremony.
