New Mexico Gov. Martinez announces summer reading challenge

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez has announced a summer reading challenge using prizes to get students reading.

The governor said Monday the New Mexico True Summer Reading Challenge will keep students engaged during the break and allow them to compete.

The challenge is open to all New Mexico elementary school children ages 5 to 12.

Students who submit a completed log showing that they read six books will receive a New Mexico True bookmark and a certificate.

Those who read 12 or more books and submit a short essay explaining why they love New Mexico will receive a New Mexico True bookmark, a certificate, and will have their name entered in the random drawing for an all-expense-paid trip to Walt Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida.
