Timeline and Prizes

Read to the Final Four

To engage youth in the Greater New Orleans area and leave a lasting, positive impact on students, the NCAA and the New Orleans Local Organizing Committee have teamed up to promote and inspire reading growth for second and third graders through this reading program.

Read to the Final Four is a reading competition encouraging schools to log the most minutes with the top schools being identified every week starting in January. Students and teachers will have the opportunity to win prizes throughout the duration of the competition. The top four schools’ second & third-grade class participants with the most minutes read throughout the competition will be selected in March to win a field trip to the Final Four Fan Fest presented by Capital One for an awards ceremony April 1.
