Submit your completed mixtapes here!

Reading Challenge Guidelines:

  • Read some awesome books.
  • The challenge form includes a Side A and Side B of the mixtape. Both entries submitted = 2 entries into a prize drawing.
  • Record the title and author on each line of the mixtape form. 1 book = 1 song. 20 songs = 1 completed mixtape (you can still be entered in the drawing if only one side of the mixtape is completed!)
  • Maximum 2 mixtapes per person, and you may not use the same book to complete a second mixtape.
  • Return completed forms to a campus library location or submit completed prompts online before September 11th, 2018.
