Read to the Final Four

Register by January 25. Competition starts February 1.


The NCAA and San Antonio Sports have teamed up to leave a lasting, positive impact on area third grade students as the city gears up to host the 2021 NCAA Women's Final Four. 

Read to the Final Four is a reading competition designed to promote and inspire reading growth for third graders by encouraging students to log the most minutes reading to advance though each round of the tournament-style competition. 

As schools or classrooms advance through the tournament rounds, students reading the most minutes will earn free books with the grand prize winner receiving a $5,000 library makeover from Scholastic. 

Registration is now closed.  

Schools/classrooms that sign up will be provided with a welcome kit before the competition starts and access to an online tracking system for recording minutes and books read.
