Whether you read the same book together or everyone reads on their own, family reading nights are a great way to connect! Just as eating together as a family is important to help you connect and build relationships, reading together as a family is important, too.
Whether you are a family of 10 or a family of 1, you can join the fun and set your own goals to see how much you can log on your own or challenge your family and friends. Everyone who has registered for the challenge and logs reading or activities has a chance to win fantastic raffle prizes!
Get started by signing in or registering on Beanstack as an individual or family. If you have used Beanstack before (for Summer Reading, for example), sign in with the same login information. Once you're logged in, select Family Read Challenge 2022 and Join Challenge under each reader’s profile. New to Beanstack or need a refresher? View a quick tutorial!
Read for 20 minutes, log your reading, and earn 50 points. Every 20 minutes of reading that you complete and log, earns more points and automatic entries into the weekly random raffles. If you read as a family or group, log those minutes under each profile.
Earn points for completing a variety of activities. Earn 25, 50, or 75 points per activity, depending on the difficulty of the activity. The list of activities can be viewed in Beanstack after joining the challenge. For activities done as a family or group, log the activity on each profile.
Each participant can earn a maximum of 500 points. Once you've earned 50 points, you'll receive a virtual ticket for the Grand Prize Basket raffles. For every 50 points you earn, you will receive additional virtual tickets for the Grand Prize Basket Raffles.
Once you've earned a virtual ticket, be sure to go to the Drawings tab in your profile to view the prize choices and enter your tickets for the prize you wish to win. Only one Grand Prize Basket can be won per person. If you earn multiple tickets, you can put them all towards one basket or put some in other baskets.
If you reach 500 total points, you'll earn a BONUS virtual ticket for the Grand Prize Raffle baskets. Some special activities can also earn additional BONUS virtual tickets for the Grand Prize Raffle. Remember, we are also giving away random prizes each week! The more reading and activities you log, the more likely you are to win a weekly prize. Winners of a weekly prize are still eligible to win a Grand Prize Basket.
