Ozzie's Scholars

The Kane County Cougars have designated a total of 10 Chicagoland youth as 2013-2014 "Ozzie's Scholars". The Cougars' reading scholarship program encouraged current and former members of Ozzie's Reading Club to submit a brief essay explaining how their love for reading was furthered through Ozzie's Reading Club, the Cougars' reading incentive program.

Since the program's inception 19 years ago, more than 2 million Chicagoland youth have participated in Ozzie's Reading Club, which tracks the progress of a students' reading around the bases of a baseball diamond. Each participating teacher may determine his or her own reading requirements. Students completing the program's requirements "hit a home run" and earn a free ticket to a Cougars game designated by their school, along with a pre-game parade, special t-shirt and food voucher.

The following winners have been selected by the Cougars and awarded a scholarship from the Cougars organization.

Izabelle D. (St. Michael School, Carol Stream)
Carlie G. (Harrison Street School, Geneva)
James P. (St. Raphael Catholic School, Naperville)
Callie T. (Graham Elementary, Naperville)

Jered M. (Lord and Savior Lutheran School, Crystal Lake)
William K. (St. Charles East High School)
Emma P. (Geneva High School)
Robert S. (Elmhurst College)

Winners and their families will be recognized on the field before the Sunday, July 13th Cougars game.
