Friday, September 1, 2017 to Tuesday, October 31, 2017

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are challenging every classroom at a Buccaneers Academy to become better readers during the annual Reading Challenge!

The challenge encourages students to read using the myON reading program, provided at no cost to all students in Hillsborough County, and log as many minutes from September 1- October 31!

The classroom with the most minutes read from each Buccaneers Academy will win a pizza party.

The classroom with the highest average of all 24 Buccaneers Academies will win a special party featuring Tampa Bay Buccaneers Cheerleaders and Captain Fear!

The Buccaneers Academy Leaderboard will be posted throughout the challenge. Be sure to check back to see how the minutes stack up!

Read as a class! Read with a group! Read at home!

Buccaneers Academies serve over 20,000 youth and 2,100 teachers by providing programming and enrichment to encourage and foster learning at 24 public schools in Tampa Bay. With the goal of empowering students to become champions on and off the field, the Buccaneers donate a red state-of-the-art Buccaneers themed-court sized shade cover at each school to symbolize the Buccaneers enduring commitment to students, while providing large scale shade to protect students from the sun. 

At each Official Buccaneers Academy unique opportunities to interact in meaningful ways with Bucs players and Cheerleaders are part of the curriculum. The Buccaneers are invested in the long-term success of students and focus on transforming their educational experience all year long.
