The CenturyLink and Idaho Statesman Hat Trick Reading Program is back!

If you're a hockey fan between the ages of 5 and 13, then stop by to pick up your reading log and check out a book... you'll win your first Steelheads ticket right then and there!

Win another ticket just by reading at least 20 minutes a day for 7 days.

Finally, if you bring us an essay or drawing about the Steelheads, you'll get a Steelheads baseball cap and an invitation to a free skate day from 1:00 to 3:00 pm on March 25!

The program ends February 24th, so stop by and get your first ticket today!
