Children who have read 8 or more books and returned this form will have a chance to win one of the following prizes: A dodgeball, basketball, soccer ball, or volleyball. All participants will also receive 2 free tickets to a Gateway Grizzlies Baseball game on either August 8th or 9th.  (Additional tickets available to purchase for $10 each).
