The Youngstown State Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is launching Pete's Reading Club, an incentive-based program to inspire area children to read for enjoyment.

Students who reach reading goals established by their teachers will receive a free ticket to attend a YSU men's or women's basketball game as a group during the 2019-20 season. Teachers will also receive a free ticket to the chosen game, and there will be discounted tickets for families. Students will be involved in an on-court activity at the game they choose to attend.

As an added bonus, Pete the Penguin will visit participating classrooms during the school year.

For more information on Pete's Reading Club, contact YSU Athletics Ticket Manager Austin Snodgrass at arsnodgrass@ysu.edu or (330) 941-7466.
