Summer reading contest winners will head to Lansing for a day

State Rep. Hank Vaupel, R-Fowlerville, is holding his annual summer reading contest for students in grades 1-5. The contest concludes Sept. 1, where the winners will be invited to Lansing to be “Rep. for a Day.”

“I am excited to host this reading program for the young people of our community,” Vaupel said. “Studies show reading over the summer helps students with learning retention, preparing them for the following school year. It also provides a great opportunity for our youth to learn about the legislative process and how their government works.”

To enter, students must fill out a special contest bookmark with 10 books they have read over the summer. The bookmarks can be found at the Howell, Hartland, and Fowlerville libraries, and there is no limit to the number of entries. The winners will be randomly drawn and invited to Lansing with their families to serve with Rep. Vaupel as “Rep. for a Day.”

Questions related to the contest or other state issues should be directed to Rep. Vaupel’s office by calling (517) 373-8835 or by email at
