The Gwinnett Gladiators Hat Trick for Reading Program is designed to help stimulate interest in reading among elementary school aged children in the many Public, Private, and Home School groups in our area.
Each student will be given a Gladiators bookmark and asked to read at least three books during a specified time period (usually four weeks.) It will be up to the teacher to determine appropriate reading materials. After students read their books, they will be required to submit to the teacher “proof” they read their book (i.e. essay, report, etc.). As books are read, the teacher verifies by initialing a designated space on each bookmark.
After the Hat Trick for Reading Program is completed, each school will provide the Gladiators with a number of students who “scored a hat trick”. The Gladiators will then provide the appropriate amount of ticket vouchers to the teacher for distribution to these students. Students in Gwinnett County Public Schools will receive a voucher for two (2) complimentary End Zone seats to the Friday, November 11th game vs. Florida. All Other Public School systems, Private Schools, and Home School Groups will have a chance to win (2) vouchers and attend the Saturday November 12th game vs. Florida. The voucher will also allow the purchase of up to 4 additional End Zone seats for only $5 each. An End Zone seat has a regular gate price of $12.
