The NCAA and the New Orleans Local Organizing Committee have teamed up to inspire second and third grade students to Read to the Final Four through a 10-week reading competition. 

Read to the Final Four is a legacy literacy challenge that aims to inspire youth toward a lifetime dedication and love of reading and learning by providing incentives for students as they progress through the bracket competition. Starting in late January, every week, the top schools will be announced based on the number of average minutes their school has read. The Final Four schools will ultimately win a field trip to the Final Four Fan Fest at the Morial Convention Center for a private awards ceremony.
