River Bandits Book Buddies



RIVER BANDITS BOOK BUDDIES- Sponsored by Tobacco Free QC and Jewel Osco

The River Bandits Book Buddies is a four-week, three-prize reading program that promotes reading among youth in the community by providing incentives that motivate students to practice reading. The program can begin anytime from January through early March and continues for a full month. The River Bandits provide prizes for the program, with a grand prize of a ticket to a Quad Cities River Bandits game at Modern Woodmen Park, along with a complimentary meal and the chance to parade on the playing field before the designated Book Buddies Games.

Since the program is designed to provide incentives for students to meet reading goals it can be easily integrated into ongoing lesson plans. The teachers retain the ability to set the reading goals and determine whether they have been met, and it is up to their discretion to give students second chances in order to help them complete the program successfully.
