More than 50 young readers throughout Queens were awarded for their participation in this year’s New York State Assembly Summer Reading Challenge on Monday, October 24.

Assemblymember Rory Lancman presented award certificates to students who accumulated at least 40 days of reading throughout the summer, either independently or with their parents and guardians.

“A lot of the time my kids don’t want to read, but if I tell them that they’ll get something out of it, they have the incentive to do it,” said Lisa Ramos, mother of Lara and Eduardo of P.S. 117 in Briarwood.

Student readers from public schools in Jamaica, Flushing, Briarwood, Kew Gardens, Fresh Meadows and Richmond Hill attended the ceremony held in the Briarwood Library.
