Get your reading glasses on.

A new contest at the Learning Hub will reward readers this summer.

All a person has to do is pick up their ‘Passport to Reading’ at the Learning Hub and start reading to win some great prizes.

The basic rules are as follows:

1.  The Passport to Reading adventure is  open to everyone in Fort St. James whether they are attending school or not. All you need is a book and your Passport, both of which can be picked up at the Learning Hub.

2.   Contestants must select a book to read or have it read to them.

3.   When finished, bring the book and your Passport to Reading to the Learning Hub or the College of New Caledonia in Fort St. James, where you will be asked a few questions about the book (to prove you read it) and your Passport will be stamped.

4.  Contestants receiving 1-5 stamps will have their name entered into a draw. Those with 6-10 stamps get their name entered again, 11-15 stamps get another entry and so on.  No limit to the number of stamps you can earn!

5.  First prize is a notebook computer.  Second prize is an iPod.  Third prize is a digital camera.

6.  This contest closes on September 12, 2011.

Good Luck!
