WorldWide IDEA's Idita-Read Event Ready to Roll!

Our 6th annual reading-incentive race, WorldWide IDEA's Idita-Read 2012, is ready to accept participant registrations — woohoo! For those not familiar with this race, it is our online reading-incentive event for K-12 students that mirrors Alaska's biggest annual sled dog race, the Iditarod®.

Our Idita-Read.org fans will notice that the Read A Route version works a little differently than our original. However, this new system reflects the suggestions by our Idita-Read.org Team Managers over the years about what they liked and could use improvement.

For example, we have made it more adaptable and affordable to sign-up any number of students on a team. Plus, we now offer the complete flexibility of grouping students on however many teams they want. Pairs can work together to read to each other or have small groups go head-to-head to heat up their competitive drive to read more - it's up to you, Team Manager!

Don't forget to also check out our Event Kit for useful printables and a long list of related family-friendly, free educational websites to make the 2012 event a winner for all!
