Zephyr Supports Real Dawgs Read

Posted on
In today's world of screens and social media, Zephyr is proud to partner with the University of Washington's Office of Trademarks and Licensing on a program designed to help young students fall in love with reading called Real Dawgs Read. 
 
To participate, K-8 students read (or are read to) at least 20 minutes a day for 30 days, recording each day in a journal sent to their school by the University of Washington. Once the journal is complete, the student sends it back to the University in exchange for a certificate and a free Husky hat.
 
The Real Dawgs Read program focused this year on partnerships with Title I schools across Washington — schools where more than half the students receive free or reduced-price lunch. The goal is to help students from all backgrounds understand that developing a reading habit is the first step toward higher education. To date, more than 2,100 students have sent in complete reading journals.
