What is Redskins Read?

In an effort to make reading more fun for elementary students, the Redskins Charitable Foundation created the Redskins Read Program focusing on a playbook for students to study the Xs and Os of reading! The Redskins Read Playbook provides monthly prompts for students to analyze a book(s) of their choice, focusing on different areas of the story (e.g. characters, setting, plot). This supplemental learning tool incentivizes 4th and 5th grade students by providing monthly prizes and the chance to host a Redskins event with current players at their school in the spring! The program runs from September – March.



2018 Redskins Read Bookfair

On Saturday, May 12, 2018, the Redskins Charitable Foundation partnered with Barnes & Noble for the 2018 Redskins Read Bookfair. Numerous Barnes & Noble store locations throughout the DMV hosted Redskins celebrities and guest authors for a special story time. A percentage of all purchases on the day benefited literacy programs in the community by providing books to children in need.
