Thousands of students in kindergarten through sixth grade across Central Indiana participated in the challenge this year.
Those in kindergarten through 3rd grade were challenged to read at least 1,200 minutes.
4th graders through 6th graders were challenged to read at least 2,500 minutes.
The program aims to encourage students to discover the job of reading, and learning to do it daily.
