2023 Say Yes to Reading Contest

Enter Scout Life's 2023

"Say Yes to Reading!" Contest!

Enter the 36th annual Scout Life reading contest now! Write a one-page report titled “The Best Book I Read This Year” and enter it in the Scout Life 2023 “Say Yes to Reading!” contest.

The book can be fiction or nonfiction, but the report has to be in your own words — 500 words tops. Enter in one of these three age categories:

 

  • 8 years old and younger
  • 9 and 10 years old
  • 11 years old and older

 

First-place winners in each age category will receive a $100 Scout Shop gift card. Second-place winners will receive a $75 gift card; third-place winners will receive a $50 gift card.

 

Everyone who enters will receive a free patch like the one on this page.

 

The patch is a temporary insignia, so it can be worn on the right pocket of the Scout uniform shirt. Proudly display it there or on another item such as a vest, plaque or trophy. In the coming years, you’ll have the opportunity to earn other patches.

 

The contest is open to all Scout Life readers. Be sure to include your name, address, age and school grade on the entry. Send your report, along with a business-sized self-addressed stamped envelope, to this address:

 

Scout Life Reading Contest
S306
P.O. Box 152079
Irving, TX 75015-2079

 

Entries must be postmarked by Dec. 31, 2023, and must include entry information and a business-sized self-addressed stamped envelope.
