C2E2 Empowers Chicago-area Students to Read with “Power Up to Read” Program
Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2), the largest pop culture convention in the Midwest are teaming up with 194 local schools and libraries to launch “Power Up To Read.” The free program gives students between ages 6-14 the chance to earn a free 3-day badge to C2E2 simply by reading! In its inaugural year, ReedPOP is distributing 57,000 “Power Up To Read” participation worksheets and coupon codes to participating schools and libraries to help incentivize students to read more.
To partake in the program, students must attend a participating school and obtain a “Power Up To Read” worksheet from a school representative or download a copy from the Power Up To Read website. To complete the program, students must read eight books, comic books, or graphic novels from their school or library between now and March 9, 2019 and fill out the provided worksheet with the requested details on the books they read.
Once the students complete their worksheets, they can turn in the completed sheet to their school’s representative in exchange for a promo code which can be redeemed by a parent or guardian and are valid for a free 3-day badge for the student, and 50 percent off two additional 3-day badges. Codes can be redeemed at C2E219.com/badges.
