Real DAWGS Read

Readers are leaders!

Real Dawgs Read is a summer reading program developed for K-8, Title I schools in Washington state. Participants read at least 30 minutes a day over 30 separate days to earn a Husky reward and reading certificate. We are currently planning for summer 2021 and will invite eligible schools to participate once the program begins.

If you are an educator at a K-8, Title I school and would like to join Real Dawgs Read, contact us at

This program is possible because of generous support from AT&T and Starbucks. Over the years, UW licensees Zephyr Headwear, Logo Brands and Strideline Socks have donated merchandise which rewards successful readers.


Start reading today! Books, comic books, magazines, newspapers — YOU choose. Read alone, read aloud, read with friends, have someone read to you. Just read, and you’ll be dressed like a Dawg in no time!
