Every year state Assemblyman Mike Miller, top left, sponsors a Summer Reading Challenge for schools in Assembly District 38, in coordination with New York State libraries. Last week, Miller presented New York state Assembly Excellence in Reading certificates to students who participated from JHS 210, Elizabeth Blackwell Junior High School, in Ozone Park.

The purpose is to inspire students to read on a regular basis throughout the summer break. All students who participated were required to read 15 minutes a day for 40 days during the months of July and August. Students who participated were responsible to log their reading hours and the number of books they read. Assemblyman Miller thanks all the schools and students who participated in the summer reading challenge.
