Warwick, RI – Four local kids won tickets to the Paw Sox this summer in the “Every Hero has a Story” summer reading program sponsored by Citizens Bank, the Pawtucket Red Sox, Pepsi, and the Rhode Island Office of Library and Information Services.

The contest celebrated this year’s “All-Star Reading Program,” by encouraging students across the state to read this summer.

Rhode Island residents between the ages of six and 12 who completed Rhode Island public libraries’ “Every Hero has a Story” summer reading program were eligible to win four tickets to the Aug. 18 Paw Sox game.

To participate, children visited their local public library and completed an entry form which included a creative response to the question: “What was your favorite book this summer and why?”

Katie Ighagni, Gregory Laliberte, and Mia Swenson of Warwick rose to the challenge.
