Read To Win is our FREE reading program for kids in elementary school
We launched it back in March of 2016 but had to put the program on pause for the last 2 years, so we're so excited to be bringing it back for the 2022-2023 school year.
How Read to Win Works
For each chapter or book they read, kids will fill out a line on an entry sheet. They then put the sheet into the Read To Win box in their classroom. Their teacher draws 5 winners each month, and each winner gets a certificate for 2 Free Games of Laser Tag at Laser City.
The more they read, the more entries they get!

What is Read To Win?
Launched in 2016, Read to Win is a FREE reading program for kids in grades K-6. For each chapter or book they read (depending on the conditions set), kids will fill out entry sheets that they put into the Read to Win box. Once a month from October to June, you just need to draw 5 sheets from the box and those students will receive a certificate that they can redeem online for 2 free games of Laser Tag! This means the more they read, the more entries they get!

Yes - they are 100% free. Just be sure to bring the voucher you were emailed after completing the "Redeem Certificate" form.
