The University of Toledo football team is launching the Rocket Football Reading Program for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.

The Rocket Football Reading Program is designed to encourage kids to read over the summer while working toward a special incentive. The reward for completing the program is one free ticket to the Toledo football home opener against Murray State Saturday, Sept. 14, as well as a special on-field recognition at the game.

There are three separate specialized categories: kindergarten through second grade, third through fifth grade, and sixth through eighth grade.

The deadline to complete and turn in the program is Friday, Sept. 6, at 5 p.m. at the Rocket Ticket Office in Savage Arena.

More information, including specifics for each age group, can be found on the Rocket Reading Program webpage.
