Campbellsville Elementary School students recently met a reading challenge and have received 100 books for their media center.

During the 2015-2016 school year, Amazon donated several Kindles to the CES media center, and, at a ceremony to unveil the devices, students were challenged to read for 1,000 hours over the summer.



CES students kept reading logs this summer, and surpassed the 1,000 hours.

Those who read the longest were invited to a special event at Amazon to unveil renovations there, and given a tour of the facility.

The top readers in the challenge were first-graders Sarah Parrott and Kenady Gabehart, second-graders Mark Lawson, Sean Welch and Timothy Coots and third-graders Raegan Gabehart and Lily Coots.
