  • There will be weekly prize drawings for anyone who logged at least 30 minutes the previous week.

    • For example, if you read and logged 5 minutes every day from June 3rd - June 9th, you would qualify for the drawing on June 11th.

    • Paper logs must be turned in by Saturday (of the logging week). So if the drawing is on June 11th, the paper logs must be turned in by June 8th.

    • There will be 7 weekly drawings.
