Pass, Rush, Read ChallengeAnnual Pass, Rush, Read Challenge

Now through October 21st


We are proud to announce the start of our 2nd Annual Pass, Rush, Read Challenge between Pinedale and Big Piney. The reading challenge takes place the month before the big football game between Big Piney and Pinedale high schools. Students, teachers and staff at the Middle and High Schools can keep track of their reading minutes to score for their school. Every 700 minutes read scores a “touchdown” and gets their team closer to the big win. There is even a traveling trophy presented to the winning district. Last year the Big Piney team won with a record 191 touchdowns for a total of 133,700 minutes read in just one month!


Reading logs can be returned to the Pinedale or Big Piney libraries or the middle school and high school libraries. This is a great opportunity for all students to participate and have fun at the Sublette County Bowl HS football game in Big Piney on October 23rd. Join us there at half-time to see who will win the 2015 Pass, Rush, Read Challenge. For more information contact Ana Cuprill- YA Specialist Pinedale at 367-4114 or your district’s high school or middle school librarian.
