On Monday November 18th at 6:00 pm, the first annual Read To Lead Talent Contest will be held at Nathan B. Young Elementary School. Fourteen elementary schools will be competing. The talent contest seeks to highlight the creative works our students displayed, the dances they created, the stories they developed, the plays they performed, the poems they wrote and other creative endeavors they came up with in preparation of the Read To Lead Scholarship Tour.

The Read To Lead Talent Contest is a part of the Read To Lead Program an initiative launched by Dr. Robert B. Ingram, member of Miami-Dade County School Board for District 1. This innovative program was developed to improve reading among elementary school children.
