SALT LAKE CITY — While they're used to logging minutes on the basketball court, Utah Jazz players on Tuesday helped recognize students for racking up some reading time.
The pro hoopsters visited 11 elementary schools along the Wasatch Front as part of the 16th annual “Be A Team Player – Read!” contest. The monthlong challenge, which concluded on Feb. 18, required local students to chart and report their out-of-school reading minutes.
More than 20,600 students from 38 elementary schools participated in this year’s contest and read a combined total of 16,023,472 minutes.
