The Detroit Red Wings and alternate captain Justin Abdelkader are excited to announce the sixth year of Red Wings for Reading, presented by Michigan Education Savings Program (MESP), to encourage Michigan elementary school students to read outside the classroom.
All kindergarten through fifth grade students in Michigan are encouraged to read three or more books for their grade level, as selected by Abdelkader, or have someone read those three books to them. Don't forget to log how many minutes you spend reading each book!
Prizes for Students: All student entries received by January 31st, 2019 will be entered to win a pair of tickets for the March 16th, 2019 Red Wings home game, courtesy of forward Justin Abdelkader. Every participating student will become a member of Abby's All Stars and receive an official Red Wings for Reading Fan Pack.
The full list of Abdelkader's favorite books for each grade level are below, as well as a downloadable reading log, book list and poster to hang up in classrooms or throughout the school. You will also find the form to enter the contest at the bottom of this page. Happy reading!
