MTA and the Boston Red Sox Promote Literacy with Summer Reading Contest!

"Research tells us that the more children read, the better they read. And the more children read outside of school, the better they perform in school."

Join the Red Sox Summer Reading Game 2010! Children are bringing home a post card/bookmark that tells you about this exciting program.

1. Kids who pledge to read nine books, one for each position on the baseball field, between now and July 17 are entered into a drawing for prizes. Five grand-prize winners receive tickets, gift cards and baseballs autographed by Jason Varitek. The grand-prize winners also participate in an on-the-field recognition ceremony.

2. To enter just complete the postcard, pledging to read 9 books, and mail it before July 17, 2010.
