Reading…Give It a Shot!
Lighting the lamp. Lighting imagination
This program is open for all youth in Alberta! Whether your kids are in class, hubs or learning at home we encourage you to take advantage of our free literacy program.
In 1995, TEPF identified an exciting opportunity to promote literacy, strengthen existing reading programs, and encourage parents to share in their children’s reading.
The Reading…Give it a Shot! program was created working with founding partner, the Calgary Flames.
Reading is viewed as the best way for children to develop skills that will benefit them for a lifetime. By encouraging reading, this program opens the minds of children to a world of knowledge and imagination. Reading is a gift, and Reading…Give it a Shot! helps students bring this gift to life.
Thanks to the Calgary Flames, the Calgary Flames Foundation, DCM and One Transport Group TEPF continues to encourage students to discover the joy and benefit of reading.
NEW: Species at Risk collector cards are here! Kids can now use Species at Risk, Canadian Wildlife as well as the Calgary Flames collector cards. Calgary Flames cards are available to youth in Southern Alberta, from Red Deer south only.
Registrations are accepted throughout the year from schools, hubs, parents, community organizations, youth serving agencies and home school educators across Alberta. Note: In the fall Calgary Flames trading cards are from the previous year’s roster.
