Data Reporting

Within the federal fiscal year of 10/1/19 to 09/30/20, the data elements that need to be captured are:

  1. How many children participated? This is defined as children who read at least 100 books and received their first prize.
  2. How many children completed? This is defined as children who read 1000 books, regardless of what fiscal year they started in.

Please report your annual data (meaning we only need this once a year!) by November 15th, by completing this survey monkey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/1kb4kDATAREP
