As the winner of this year's Take Off & Read Challenge, Cathy Stagge's third grade class from Yorktown Elementary School in Indiana enjoyed a model aviation experience at the National Model Aviation Museum! Combined, this class read 129 books and was treated to a museum tour, building FPG-9 foam gliders, flight demonstrations, and a pizza party. At the end of the day, each student left with his or her very own model airplane (and in one case, drone)! The Take Off & Read Challenge is made possible through our partnership with United Way of Delaware and Henry Counties.
