The minutes unlocked a donation of 200,000 books for home libraries for those students who don't have easy access to reading materials, according to a press release from the Natrona County School District. The effort was part of the 2019 Scholastic Read-a-Palooza Summer Reading Challenge.
“I was surprised we had won, but not shocked," CCA librarian Shelley Diehl said in a statement. " ... I would expect that engagement in reading to continue into the summer. The Scholastic Reading Challenge simply gave students a place to document their reading minutes.”
The school will be featured in Scholastic's 2020 "Book of Records." The school will also receive a plaque.
