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 68 schools throughout Indiana were selected in late January during an official selection show to advance to the final bracket-style competition. Teams will 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.
