Wild About Reading

The Iowa Wild supports reading in its local community by providing a program that gives students an opportunity to earn hockey tickets by hitting their reading goals! 


Wild About Reading Program

Goal: The Iowa Wild Wild About Reading program is designed to promote the importance of literacy and stimulate interest in reading amongst elementary and middle school students by providing a fun incentive to read – a ticket to an Iowa Wild hockey game at Wells Fargo Arena!

Classrooms Receive:

  • Full program instructions
  • Teacher program checklist
  • Bookmarks and reading scorecards
  • A poster promoting the program
  • Free ticket redemption forms
  • Domino’s pizza coupons
  • Dairy Queen coupons

Program Outline:

  • Program runs for two weeks (or otherwise determined by the teacher)
  • Three reading goals are assigned to the class by the teacher
  • Each participating student receives an Iowa Wild bookmark and reading scorecard to track their progress toward reaching their reading goals
  • After each goal is achieved the student receives a prize

Goal 1 – A Dairy Queen coupon
Goal 2 – A free Domino’s small pizza coupon
Goal 3 – An Iowa Wild ticket voucher

When a student completes the reading “hat trick", they receive a ticket to an upcoming Iowa Wild home game.

  • Family and friends are given the opportunity to purchase tickets at a discounted rate.
  • Five lucky classrooms are randomly selected for a reading visit from Iowa Wild players!
