McDonald's Owner/Operators of Arizona and the Arizona Parent Teacher Association (PTA) announced today that Lincoln Elementary is a Readers Are Leaders Award winner, receiving $1,000 for its school library.
Lincoln Elementary PTA is one of 10 Arizona PTAs receiving $1,000 grants for its literacy activities from McDonald's Readers Are Leaders Award program. The grant program provides money for the books and reading materials for school libraries to enhance book collections and offer titles that kids will want to drop everything and read.
Lincoln Elementary school librarian Diane Bright stated she plans to use the money to buy popular award-winning books to inspire students to read even more.
McDonald's and Arizona PTA began the grant program in 2007 and have since awarded $45,000.
