When the UO was given the opportunity to help ignite a love of reading in Oregon’s children while simultaneously building literacy skills, enhancing self-confidence, and providing books directly to kids, it was a no-brainer!
The UO proudly supports SMART and its proven results in helping generations of kids across the state build a foundation for future knowledge, education, and prosperity. The UO exists to educate the next generation, serve the state, and conduct research that changes lives forever, but this doesn’t start at the university level. It starts in preschool, kindergarten and early K-12 grades when students must first gain necessary skills and confidence – especially in reading.
Through this challenge, Ducks and Duck fans can participate at a level that makes sense for them – with the shared goal of investing in Oregon’s future. (The possibility of “beating” the Beavers is just an added bonus.)
Let’s help Oregon get SMART…and go Ducks!
