Read Across America - Tour Schedule


Read-On Missouri Tour2021 Read-On Missouri Tour promotes NEA's Read Across America

Since 1999, Missouri NEA has sponsored the Read Across America tour to help inspire reading in Missouri’s youth. The National Education Association’s nationwide reading celebration takes place each year during first week of March. Missouri NEA Pres. Phil Murray and Vice Pres. Rebeka McIntosh will engage with students about the connection between reading and success in life. We encourage local leaders to organize classroom activities that promote lifetime reading habits and use skits, parades, games and other activities that celebrate reading and further the message that reading opens doors to opportunities to learn and grow in our diverse world.
