WEDU, the main PBS station of West Central Florida, recently featured the Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading on its WEDU Quest program. The segment highlights some key pieces of the ongoing work in Manatee and Sarasota counties this year, including volunteer readers at local elementary schools during Read Across America Day, a visit from Mind in the Making author Ellen Galinsky and efforts to share the Vroom app with parents.

This serves as a great example of how Campaign Communities can harness the power of communications to tell their stories and inform viewers on the importance of reading proficiency by third grade. 

Watch the video on WEDU to catch the entire segment!
