Read during the summer and
win a Hot Air Balloon visit!

As the presenting sponsor of the Annual Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic, CapEd invites area elementary kids to stay sharp all summer by participating in Read to Rise.

Read to Rise is a summer reading incentive program for elementary school children in Southern Idaho (Regions 3 & 4). This program encourages students to continue building their reading comprehension skills by rising to the challenge of reading throughout the summer.

The top 5 schools with the most minutes read will receive a CapEd Hot Air Balloon inflation demonstration and an assembly on balloon aviation at their school!
