The Dare U 2 Read-A-Thon at Jefferson High School starts next week, in which young people give up TV and other screen time for the week to devote their extra hours to books. Students will be signing up adult sponsors willing to kick down a little cash for school programs as well. The event is part of the national Each One Teach One! Promoting Literacy and History, at www.readers2leaders.net. Find out more about the Jefferson event by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
