The Mets and Delta Air Lines have partnered on the Ya Gotta Read! program to help foster a love of reading in students. More than 5,000 students at nine elementary schools in Queens are participating in the program that will launch on February 12.
The goal of the program is for students to read one book a week for a total of six books. Students will write a book review for each book and hand it in to their teachers. The more books students read, the more Mets prizes they will earn! The student that reads the most books will be awarded premium seats at Mets home game and the class that reads the most books will win a visit by a Mets player and Mr. Met!
