Students who achieve the goal of reading 20 minutes per day throughout the time frame (for a total of 800 minutes) will receive TWO complimentary ticket vouchers to a Hurricanes home game.  Schools who report students reading at least 2,020 books will be entered into a drawing to attend a "Cool School Field Trip" at the PNC Arena to participate in fun activities, and hear from Hurricanes players in February 2020.
