Read to Win

The Missouri State Fair Foundation is on a mission to educate youth about agriculture. We are excited to partner with the International Association of Fairs & Exhibitions (IAFE) to provide the "Read to Win" program. Children of all ages can win a FREE Missouri State Fair admission ticket, a Read to Win ribbon, and a "Color the Fair" activity book. To win, youth must read farm and/or fair related books. Charolette's Web is a perfect example.
  • Read to Win is for youth PK - Grade 12.
    • PK & KG children must read (or have read to them) 22 Farm/Fair books
    • Children in grades 1-4 must read (or have read to them) 15 age appropriate books
    • Youth in grades 5-12 must read 11 age appropriate books.
  • A parent or teacher must initial/witness each book read.
  • Reading log forms must be submitted to our office no later than July 6, 2020.
  • Below are some reading suggestions and other ag education resources.
