However you’re celebrating reading today, you’re joining more than 45 million other readers across the country who are honoring Dr. Seuss and appreciating the joy and fun of reading.
This is NEA’s 18th year of promoting reading with a special one-day celebration that also kicks off March as Reading Month. This year’s featured book is the Dr. Seuss classic, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go”
And today is also the start of a nationwide search for students 5 to 18 years of age who excel in STEAM—science, technology, engineering, arts and math. In recognition of the 25th anniversary of the book, Dr. Seuss Enterprises and NEA will offer a $10,000 STEAM scholarship through its “Kid, You’ll Move Mountains” promotion. Go to www.nea.org/grants to learn more.
And finally, let us know what you’re doing in your school to promote reading today, this month and all year. Share your ideas on MEA Facebook or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
