Wranglers kick off elementary reading challenge

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The Las Vegas Wranglers hockey club is going a long way toward icing illiteracy and instilling good reading habits in Clark County students.

The team Monday announced nearly 39,000 students in 66 local elementary schools have signed up for the second annual Reading Wranglers program. That's up from 22,000 students last year.

Kindergarten through second grade students must read a minimum of 10 minutes a day; third through fifth grade students must read 20 minutes each day.

Students who fulfill the requirements will be rewarded with prizes donated by local businesses such as Nothing Bundt Cakes, Coast Bowling Centers, Sammy's Woodfired Pizza and many more.

At the conclusion of the six-week program, students and teachers will be recognized during the Wranglers' home game on Saturday, Dec. 8. Ten students and one teacher will be randomly drawn to receive an Amazon Kindle, courtesy of the Wranglers.

Tickets for the Wranglers' 10th season are on sale now. For more information, visit www.lasvegaswranglers.com.
