Osceola Reads Summer Reading Challenge

What is it?

The Osceola Reads Summer Reading Challenge is to encourage children to read throughout the summer and prepare for kindergarten using the Footsteps2Brilliance app.

Who is it for?

Children ages 3-5 living in Osceola County who have not entered kindergarten.

When will it take place?

June 1-August 8 

During this time, the Osceola Reads Team will be looking for the community users with the highest overall usage on Footsteps2Brilliance during specific periods to award some great prizes! 

Usage reports will be collected on the following dates for approximately the 2 weeks prior:

  • June 13
  • June 27
  • July 11
  • July 25
  • August 8

Where will it take place?

The best thing about our reading challenges is they can happen anywhere! Your child can read anywhere, at any time using the Footsteps2Brilliance app using a smart device you already own. 

Tip: You do not need WiFi to use the Footsteps2brilliance app but be sure to connect the device to WiFi weekly to make sure your child’s usage data is updated in our database.

Why have a reading challenge?

We want to encourage our little readers to read throughout the summer and promote reading in our community! 

We know that early reading plays a big part in future reading and school success, so we are looking to help create a community of readers! Reading with your child will also model the importance of literacy.

How to get started?

Register for the free reading app Footsteps2Brilliance, download the Footsteps2Brilliance app and start reading! Since we are awarding prizes for specific periods of usage, you can enter the contest at any time for the chance to be eligible to win.
