Northeast Fair 2017
Tuesday, June 20 & Wednesday, June 21
The Northeast Fair and The Times-Tribune and The Citizens' Voice, in affiliation with the International Association of Fairs and Expositions (IAFE), the National Independent Concessionaires Association (NICA) and Reithoffer Shows are proud to present the
READ and WIN PROGRAM
an extremely successful world-wide literacy program that fulfills the mission
of the fair, while boosting recognition of, and driving new students and
their families to discover their local public libraries.
Over 2,500 local students participated last year !
Here is how Read and Win works:
Each student in grades one through eight that checks out, reads, and returns just one library book to a participating local public library, will be awarded a special Read and Win Award Ticket by their local librarian(s) good for the following awards:
-FREE admission for the student to the Northeast Fair on Wednesday, June 22 including UNLIMITED FREE RIDES and all entertainment, compliments of The Times-Tribune, The Citizens' Voice, the Northeast Fair and Reithoffer Shows.
- A FREE special ribbon bookmark, compliments of the IAFE and NICA.
The Read and Win Award Ticket is redeemed by the student at the Northeast Fair admission gates for free entry to the fair, unlimited free rides and the free special ribbon bookmark on Wednesday night, June 22. The award ticket is void at all other times.
In order to have children properly chaperoned, the fair requires that every child be accompanied at the fair by an adult. The adult must pay admission to the fair, as Read and Win awards are strictly limited to students in grades one through eight.
Each child that enters the fair on a Read and Win ticket must each be accompanied by a paying adult - one free to one paying adult ratio. If two children have Read and Win Award tickets, there must be two paying adults, three Read and Win Award tickets require three paying adults, etc.
An adult with a volunteer worker or complimentary fair admission pass is not considered a paying adult. To be a paying adult, admission must be paid at the fair entrance gate or an advance purchase fair admission ticket must be presented at the gate.
Read and Win Award tickets are limited. Check with participation library for availability.
