Redskins Read Program

In an effort to make reading more fun for elementary students, the Redskins Charitable Foundation created the Redskins Read Program focusing on a playbook for students to study the Xs and Os of reading! The Redskins Read Playbook provides monthly prompts for students to analyze a book(s) of their choice, focusing on different areas of the story (e.g. characters, setting, plot). This supplemental learning tool incentivizes 4th and 5th grade students by providing monthly prizes and the chance to host a Redskins event with current players at their school in the spring! The program runs from September – March.

Applications for the 2016-2017 program are now open! Apply online at www.redskins.com/readingapplication. Applications will close at 11:59PM on Monday, June 6. All schools will be notified of their selection by Friday, June 10.
