The Memphis Grizzlies Read to Achieve Program (RTA) is in its 21st year and is an excellent way to encourage students to read and develop a love for reading. The Grizzlies, along with the support of sponsors International Paper and KPMG, are excited to provide this program for the students in the Greater Memphis area and beyond. The program consists of reading six books in six weeks and completing the activity for each week.

Each year, the Read to Achieve program touch the lives of nearly 25,000 Mid-South students through the Grizzlies Reading Challenge, Read to Achieve Assemblies, Grizzlies All-Star Reading Team and Grizzlies Reading and Learning Centers.

The Grizzlies Reading Challenge is a six-week reading program that encourages third through fifth grade students to read outside their classroom curriculum. The top students from each school with the most books read receive the opportunity to attend the Grizzlies Read to Achieve Celebration at FedExForum. Registration for The Challenge starts in October with the program tipping off in January. Only the first 60 schools to register are eligible to attend The Celebration. The Grizzlies Reading Challenge is open to Memphis City Schools, Shelby County, Desoto County, and Fayette County Schools, as well as local Private and Independent schools.

We welcome your support of the Read to Achieve Program and look forward to your school's participation in the Reading Challenge. If you have any questions, please contact Surina Sandhu at ssandhu@grizzlies.com.
