Philadelphia Reading Olympics will again celebrate reading this May. The program is an opportunity for students in grades 4–6 to share their enthusiasm for reading and to collaborate through teamwork.
Reading Olympics teams consist of 6 to 12 students and 1 adult coach. Each team collectively reads 20 books that were selected by a committee of librarians and educators. Teams compete by answering questions about the books, and all participants are awarded ribbons. Everyone is a winner in this academic competition.
The Philadelphia Reading Olympics is sponsored by a partnership of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the Free Library of Philadelphia, PHILADELPHIA READS, and the School District of Philadelphia.
