Los Alamos National Laboratory in partnership with New Mexico’s own award winning author Rudolfo Anaya and the Christopher Montalvo Memorial recently sponsored a Summer Reading Program for students in grades 9-6 from Los Alamos, Pojoaque, Santa Fe and Rio Arriba County.
The goal of the program was to encourage students to read during the summer months. Those who read the most books were awarded prizes at a recent party for those students who participated.
The student who read the most books, Lennox Chung of McCurdy School, received a set of 10 books by Rudolfo Anaya and other New Mexico authors, as well as a $50 gift card.
Eliza Lamborn, a Barranca Elementary School sixth grader read the second most books and received a set of five books by Rudolfo Anaya and a $30 gift card. Third place reader, Keri Nadler of Canyonsito Montessori School, received three books by Rudolfo Anayo and a $25 gift card.
