Reading Olympics
Every year, MCIU hosts the Montgomery County, PA, Reading Olympics. The Reading Olympics is an academic competition designed to encourage students to read a pre-selected variety of books and compete with other teams to answer questions based on those books. The program aims to promote critical thinking and teamwork while broadening students’ education, vocabulary, literacy skills and reading genres. Students are broken up into teams according to their school district and are asked a series of questions divided into categories based on their reading level. The team with the most correct answers and highest points earned is the winner.

Since 2019, the Reading Olympics had been held virtually due to COVID-19. This year, some of the events will return to in-person and will be better than ever. Over 5,000 (public and non-pub) students from our 21 school districts, grades 4-8, have registered to participate. Our in-person events for the 2023 Reading Olympics will be held at Wissahickon High School on March 7th, Souderton High School on March 14th Hatboro-Horsham High School on March 29th Lower Merion High School on March 30th, and North Penn High School on April 12th.

MCIU is committed to encouraging reading comprehension for students through the coordination of our regional events. Good luck to all of the teams and school districts competing and a special thank you to the Office of Organizational and Professional Learning for organizing this year’s Montgomery County Reading Olympics!
