Did you miss our Alert Today Florida Summer of Adventure Celebration / Summer Challenge Kick-Off  (see photos) this year? Never fear! We can still supply you with everything you need for a learning-filled summer, all for FREE.

In order to participate in the 5th annual WFSU Summer Challenge, register here  and you’ll receive an Official Checklist which you can then print off and stick up on your fridge! You can also pick up a checklist during normal business hours at the WFSU station (while supplies last), where you can also find our 2018 edition Community Classroom Consortium (CCC) Passport to Adventure. This year’s Passport focuses on exploring in nature and music, and is also available at all public library branches as well as several other community locations. 

How does the Checklist work?
Think of it as a self-paced scavenger hunt! Explore new PBS KIDS apps, read books and add them to your reading chart
 (PBS KIDS has a great reading list to start with, complete science experiments, etc. to earn points, sign your name to PROMISE that you’re being truthful, and then send it in by the deadline (July 31) to receive an invitation to our annual Summer Challenge Wrap-Up party! 

How does the Passport work?
For each stamp you receive for visiting a neighbor organization — either in-person or virtually — you’ll get points on your Summer Challenge Official Checklist, making you eligible for more goodies at the end of the summer! The community locations featured in this year’s passport will have staff on-hand to “stamp” or sign their page for you.

When You’re Done
At the end of your summer of adventure, you’ll submit your Checklist to WFSU (via email [link hpower@fsu.edu] or snail mail – attn: Hannah Power, WFSU Public Media, 1600 Red Barber Plaza, 32310). We will tally up your points and invite you to our special Summer Challenge Wrap-Up Celebration (yes more celebrating!), where we’ll honor your dedication to fighting the summer slump by awarding certificates and giving out prizes! 

This project demonstrates how WFSU/PBS KIDS and Tallahassee community partners join forces to keep you and your family engaging in informal, educational programming throughout the summer months.
