To engage Indiana youth and leave a lasting, positive impact on students, the NCAA and the Indianapolis Host Committee have teamed up to promote and inspire reading growth for third graders through a year-long, statewide reading initiative.

Read to the Final Four is a reading competition encouraging schools to log the most minutes reading and make the top 68 schools in the state. The program uses a digital literacy platform, powered by Renaissance myON®, to provide access to books and track time spent reading. The top schools throughout Indiana will be selected Jan. 29 during an official selection show to advance to the final bracket-style competition. Teams will then advance based on the number of minutes read during each week, with the Final Four schools celebrated during the 2021 Final Four festivities April 3 and 5 in Indianapolis.

Competition begins on November 10! Learn how you and your school can get involved.
