group pictureEvery year, families, schools, and community leaders join together to challenge Los Angeles County students, preschool through 12th grade, to read ions of words outside of the classroom. For 12 years Families In Schools and its partners have led Million Word Challenge engaging hundreds of schools to promote the power of reading. The 2014 Million Word Challenge takes place from February 3 – March 21, 2014. Join the campaign to support reading outside of school time in your community.

  • Involve Your School In The Campaign: Schools throughout Los Angeles County are invited to register TODAY at www.millionwordchallenge.org/register.php. After registering, school staff have access to an on-line campaign handbook containing activities and handouts that support creative literacy events at their sites. In March as the contest at each school draws to the end, schools select one student as the winner of their school's Million Word Challenge. In addition to being honored on their campus by their school and at the Festival of Books, each student winner receives a gift certificate to purchase books.
