Reminder: Deadline to enter for free Pistons tickets is April 4th. Tickets for the Detroit Red Wings are sold out.
The Michigan Education Association is rewarding students for reading through the "Michigan Reads" program. The simple program requires children and teens to work with either an educator or parent. Students need to read five age appropriate books between now and April 1, 2011. Once that parent or educator confirms the books have been read, they go to www.michiganreads.com to select the Pistons or Red Wings, enter contact information and the list of books read. Within a few days, the team will respond. So get going and read five to see the Pistons or Red Wings Live!
