Great Book Giveaway In an effort to promote childhood literacy, we hold The Great Book Giveaway every March in connection with National Reading Month. The Great Book Giveaway features story time, refreshments, fun photo props, and as the name implies, free books for the children in attendance. We also remind parents of the importance of reading aloud to their young children. Youth Sports Scholarships In an effort to provide at-risk children with opportunities for physical activity, Youth Sports Scholarships are provided for a variety of activities, including football, soccer, basketball and baseball. Sports are a great way for kids to keep physically fit, increase their concentration level and build self-esteem. All this, while developing teamwork, cooperation and discipline, and having fun to boot. To date, 70 Calvert County children have been awarded youth sports scholarships and we are currently working to expand the program. Our newest program, a Memorial Scholarship Program, will grant a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior pursuing a degree in Education and a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior pursuing an automotive technology diploma.
