To support summer reading, Capstone Digital has announced the 2012 Summer Reading Olympics. All schools using myON reader, the personalized literacy environment that provides access an integrated library of digital books with multimedia supports, are invited to participate in this summer reading program.


The 2012 Summer Reading Olympics awards prizes for the top summer readers, in addition to the school that earns the distinction of 2012 Summer Reading Olympics Champion. Prizes include:

--Gold Medal: An iPad for the student who spends the most time reading.
--Silver Medal: A Kindle Fire for the student who spends the second-most time reading.
--Bronze Medal: An iPod touch for the student who spends the third-most time reading.
--The top 100 readers receive a myON backpack.
--Every student who participates receives the myON Medal of Honor.
--Teachers, librarians and staff can also earn a PolyVision interactive whiteboard for their school by promoting the contest to students and achieving the highest participation rate among schools.

Schools and districts that aren't currently using myON reader can still implement the personalized literacy environment in time for students to participate in the 2012 Reading Olympics. myON reader provides a virtual backpack of more than 2,500 books customized to a student's interest and reading ability as measured by the Lexile Framework for reading. Students can also track their progress throughout the summer. For more information about myON reader, visit www.thefutureinreading.com.

The 2012 Summer Reading Olympics starts on June 1 and runs through August 15, and winners will be notified through the Capstone Connect blog. To register and receive more information, visit the 2012 Summer Reading Olympics contest page.
