The Toledo Mud Hens and Ohio’s 529 Plan, CollegeAdvantage, have teamed up to present Home Run Readers, a fun reward program, for children 12 and under, to encourage them to read more during the summer months. The grand prize is a $529 college savings award to open or add to a CollegeAdvantage Direct 529 Plan! Other prizes include two tickets to Aug. 20 Toledo Mud Hens game against Indianapolis Indians for each child who reads five books. In addition, children enrolled in Home Run Readers will be randomly selected for a pizza party as well.
If you’d like to sign up your child, start by completing the enrollment form. Then go to your local branch of the Toledo Lucas County Public library with your enrollment confirmation email to receive the Home Run Readers pamphlet, which provides more detail on the program. After that, have a great time with your child reading five books over the summer, or more if you like! Once you child reads the five books, you’ll receive a voucher to exchange at the Mud Hens ticket office for two tickets prior to Aug. 20 game day.
So don’t miss out on this opportunity for your child to win prizes for what you want them to do – read more and stop the summer slide. Sign up today for the Home Run Readers and we’ll see you out at Fifth Third Field.
