Reading Takes Flight

The Winnipeg Jets, in conjunction with I Love to Read Month, are once again proud to announce Reading Takes Flight presented by Esdale Printing.

Reading Takes Flight is a program that positively encourages children to develop an interest in reading.

Your school can qualify for the opportunity to have Winnipeg Jets player(s) come to your classroom on Monday, February 22nd, 2016 and read the official children’s book of the Winnipeg Jets “The Home Team”, sign autographs, distribute prizes and answer questions.

In order to assist in making our selection to send a representative from the Winnipeg Jets to your school, please provide us with the top 5 reasons why “YOU, and your class would like to host a member of the Winnipeg Jets to read to your classmates/students”. All submissions must be entered at winnipegjets.com/readingtakesflight. Deadline for submissions is Friday, February 12th, 2016.

All responses will be entered into a draw to have a member of the Jets visit your classroom. Only those classes whose submissions are selected will be contacted. Draw date will be on Monday, February 15th, 2016 and selected schools will receive confirmation of our participation by end of business on Tuesday, February 16th.

Thank you for your interest in having the Winnipeg Jets participate with your school in “Reading Takes Flight” – we appreciate your continued support.



Thank you to all those that entered this year’s contest. All winning classrooms will be contacted in the near future.
