There’s still time to get on deck for the Atlanta Braves Summer Reading Program, brought to us by the Braves, Subway Restaurants and the Georgia Public Library Service. The effort is designed to promote literacy via the attractive summertime incentives of free food and baseball. Young readers who complete the steps will earn a free ticket to a Braves game and a Subway Fresh Fit for Kids Meal.
Here’s the game plan: Georgia students in grades K-12 must read a book about sports or sportsmanship; visit www.braves.com/reading for a list of suggested, age-appropriate titles. Additional titles are available at one’s lo-cal library. After finishing the book, readers return to the website to register for the Home Run Readers program and complete a questionnaire. Print the resulting certificate and take it to one’s local library where it will be ex-changed for a six-digit offer code. That code may then be redeemed on the website for a Braves ticket to available games, and a voucher for a Subway kids meal. The ticket may be printed or mailed, and the food voucher will be mailed. Participants also have the option of purchasing additional tickets for the selected Braves game for only $8 each.
There are only three available games remaining for the program: Tues, Aug 4 vs. Giants at 7 p.m.; Sun, Aug 9 vs. Marlins at 5 p.m. and Mon, Aug 24 vs. Rockies at 7 p.m.
And since Turner Field allows outside food to be carried in, Home Run Readers can enjoy that Subway spread while watching the game!
