Student Contests

Reading events at elementary schools

During the 2009-2010 academic year, and through December of the 2010-2011 school year, donations to Michigan K.I.D.S. made it possible to provide Michigan students with more than 2. 2 million student sections, which includes 1.8 million copies of Yak’s Corner delivered to Detroit students in K-6. We also provided access to more than 4.8 million e-Editions of the Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News.  

Over 93 percent of all the newspapers and student section provided were sponsored by foundations, corporations, and generous readers.
