I'm submitting the proposal for my "Genius Hour" project today. I've decided to call it Books For Kids, though I might change the name. This one is a bit cliched. I want to find a way to encourage children to read -- especially children in poverty and children with low grades. I can sponsor books drives, tutoring sessions, read aloud sessions, and reading competitions. I'm not sure exactly which things out of that list I'll be doing, but that is the brainstorm.
I might be able to get Interact, YLC, or NHS to participate with it, and encourage high school students to volunteer at the Read-Alouds through the prospect of volunteer hours. If I continue with this project next year, I could apply for a grant from YLC.
