State Rep. Kathy Crawford, R-Novi, is encouraging students to continue to read this summer after school gets out by hosting a local summer reading program.

“This is a great opportunity to get students of all ages involved in the community and doing something positive with their time,” said Rep. Crawford. “It is also another way for families and parents to get involved with their child’s education by enjoying some quality time reading a book together or recalling interesting facts that can broaden their topics of discussion.

The Summer Reading Contest guidelines for House District 38 are included in Rep. Crawford’s customized bookmark. The bookmarks have been mailed to schools within the district and sent home with students and are also available digitally on Rep. Crawford’s website at

One lucky student and their family will be invited as special guests to accompany Rep. Crawford at the state Capitol to experience life as a state lawmaker.

“The inner workings of state government are intriguing and there are so many different facets involved with the legislative process that this opportunity can really open a young person’s mind and influence their life goals positively.”

State Rep. Kathy Crawford explains to students at Sayre Elementary School the importance of reading and how they can win a chance to become “State Rep. for a Day” through her Summer Reading Contest.

Students in grades first through sixth are eligible to participate by reading ten or more books and filling in the necessary information on Rep. Crawford’s Summer Bookmark.
