#ReadWithMe is a month long competition sponsored by the Anne Arundel County Public Schools. From January 6th until February 4th public school elementary students are encouraged to post pictures of themselves on Twitter with the hashtag #AACPSReadWithMe. Make sure to tag your school in the tweet — the school with the most tweets wins extra money to purchase additional books for their school library!
