Phi Kappi Phi Literacy Grant Award
Bobbi Urban, Minnesota State Mankato

"Bright From the Start" - Mankato Preschool-7th grade level students from a local school serving many underprivileged students will be given a reading kit with highly engaging books that have a Phi Kappa Phi name plate in each. Kits will include a reading guide for students and parents that explains the importance of regular reading and how to foster a love of reading. Matching funds will be used to purchase new and interactive books for the school's outdated library to create excitement about reading. Students will also be challenged to read and then recognized with a certificate for their achievement. Phi Kappa Phi students will help develop the reading guide and assemble kits. Press kits will also be distributed to recognize the program and Phi Kappa Phi.
