Entering your child in the contest is simple! Read six reading-level appropriate books, complete the book list on the letter your child is given, and return it to your child’s teacher for a chance at the Grand Prize. All students who read six grade-level books qualify for the Grand Prize – a trip to the Iron Bowl with two guests, sideline passes, and pre-game activities! Two Grand Prize winners – one for Alabama and one for Auburn will be chosen. Students must choose a team to represent and can only enter once. Participation is limited to K-6 Alabama public school students. Completed forms are due by October 29.
The Alabama Education Association (AEA) believes reading is a child’s key to success in school and life. That’s why AEA is emphasizing reading through its Be A Champion and Read contest. The goal of the contest is to get your child excited about reading.

WAYS THAT YOU CAN HELP CMS WITHOUT SPENDING ANY EXTRA MONEY...
INGLES ADVANTAGE CARD
When you sign-up for the Tools for Schools program and make purchases using your Ingles Advantage Card, Ingles will give back to the schools a portion of the total sales to be used by the schools to purchase computers and school supplies. You may sign up at your local Ingles store, at participating schools, or at the Ingles web site. Simply fill out a Tools for Schools application. It's that simple. The sign-up is a one-time process that will take place at the beginning of each school year. The school that is chosen is linked to your Ingles Advantage Card until the following May. You must re-enroll your Ingles Advantage Card at the beginning of each school year. Ingles will maintain a cumulative total for the selected school (limit 1 school per household) and will provide the reward to the school on the pay out period date. The CMS school code is 10008.
