BENA — Third graders at the Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig School recently competed in the statewide reading challenge, “Read to the Final Four.”

Throughout the nine-week challenge, students could earn prizes by recording the number of minutes they read each week.

Out of 140 participating schools across Minnesota, Bug-O-Nay-Ge-Shig students placed in the top 68 and won wristbands.

The challenge is sponsored yearly by the NCAA, Women’s Final Four and the Minnesota Local Organizing Committee as a way to inspire and incentivize third graders across the state to develop their abilities, a release said.
