Read to the Final Four is a reading program for 3rd graders in the NCAA® Final Four® host city. The program is modeled after the NCAA March Madness® tournament. The tournament begins with 68 schools in the first round. Schools with the highest average reading minutes will advance to second round, Sweet 16®, Elite 8®, Final Four and finally the Championship round. We are excited to see all the reading minutes students will accumulate during this program. We hope that this program will inspire students to read more and that reading will broaden their learning and imagination.
