Read to the Final Four

Read to the Final Four is a literacy challenge  aimed at creating a  lifelong love and interest in reading for third-grade students across the state of Arizona.

Created to support the NCAA’s commitment to education, Read to the Final Four was launched during the 2016 Men’s Final Four and has since made a lasting impact with thousands of students in several host cities across the nation having recorded over 121 Million minutes of reading!

The NCAA Men’s Final Four and the 2024 Men’s Final Four Host Committee have teamed up to once again host Read to the Final Four to inspire and incentivize third graders to develop their reading abilities. Schools, teachers, and students participating in this tournament-style program have the chance to win fun prizes and compete to be named the Championship school.


The challenge has officially tipped off. Schools interested in Read to the Final Four can register their 3rd grade classes now!
