MIDDLEBURY-Vermont's largest candy shop, Middlebury Sweets, will sponsor a summer reading program in Addison County.
"Reading is so important in every child's life," said Sweets co-owner Blanca Jenne. "We believe it is important for children to read all year and not just while in school. So we've decided to create a summer reading incentive program for any student in grades K-8 to encourage kids to read while out of school. This will help them maintain their reading skills while on summer vacation."
What is the "Sweet Rewards" Summer Reading program?
According to Jenne, any student who reads four books will receive a free half pound of candy of their choice from our candy store or an ice cream cone and a $5 gift certificate for Green Peppers Restaurant.
Students who submit their form for their free bag of candy or ice cream and $5 pizza gift certificate, will also have their names submitted for a chance to win our end of summer grand prize donated by local business here in Addison County. Grand prize will be given away on Aug. 31.
