Giveaways and Prizes Galore! Summer Reading for Children’s Literacy

Mark your calendars, Expanded Universe fans. EUCantina’s Summer Reading for Children’s Literacy program is kicking off on July 11, and that means your chance to win prizes in our largest giveaways – ever!

Summer Reading for Children’s Literacy is a two month long program designed to raise donations for Reading is Fundamental, the largest nonprofit children’s literacy organization in the United States. From July 11 through September 12, EUCantina will publish special content, host exclusive giveaways, and offer several creative contests and activities. The goal is to gain interest in supporting children’s literacy and bring attention to an opportunity to donate to this important cause.

A full schedule with details of all of our events will be released closer to the launch of the program. Today, we wanted to get you excited by revealing some of the items that will be used as prizes this summer. You’ll have a chance to win:

We have many other items that we’ll be giving away, mostly as part of our grand prize package, and we’re adding more items to our list every week! Prepare for a summer of reading and writing fun as we work to raise money for RIF!

A special thanks to Del Rey and the official Star Wars Books Facebook Page, who generously donated the majority of the prizes in support of children’s literacy.

Look for more information on the program in the near future.
