School treats kids who read the most like celebrities.

Britt David Magnet Academy in Columbus, Georgia turns its readers into celebrities at their annual “Millionaire Bash.” The school celebrates the students who’ve read a million words during the school year.

For the bash, kids come dressed up like a celebrity, each class takes a 15-minute limo ride and their fans (parents) are waiting there for them, cheering them on with signs and banners. They walk a red carpet, get announced, and even sign autographs! And then the kids get a party, complete with pizza, chicken nuggets, treats, and a medal for reading a million words!

One of this year’s millionaires was six-year-old Breyden Suragh. His mom Denetta says he made a lot of progress as a reader during kindergarten this year because the party motivated him. “I think it’s a genius idea,” she says. “It was very fundamental to where his reading level is now.”
