The challenge runs until August 30 and families of preschool-aged children up to 3rd grade can download the Footsteps2Brilliance app for free on their devices and computers.

“We are very excited to launch our summer reading challenge again using the Footsteps2brilliance FREE app provided by the SBCOE,” Lomanto said. “We hope to help prevent the ‘summer slide’ by challenging our students to read over the summer. The San Benito County Office of Education will be providing awards for our students, schools, and districts who read the most words.”
