New 1998 Boys Life Say Yes To Reading Patch

Each year Boy's Life has exciting program that encourages reading.

To earn the patch write a one-page report titled "The Best Book I Read This Year" and enter it in the Boys' Life 1998 "Say Yes to Reading!" contest.

The book can be fiction or nonfiction. But the report has to be in your own words. Enter in the one of these three age categories:

* 8 years old and younger,
* 9 and 10 years old,
* 11 years old and older.

When Pedro receives your report, he will send you a free patch. The top three winners from each age group will also get to pick a book from our special prize list, receive copies of "Codemaster" books 1 and 2, a set of the limited-edition Codemaster patch-and-pin set--plus have their names announced in this column!

The contest is open to all Boys' Life readers. Be sure to include your age and your grade in school on the entry.

Send your report, along with a self-addressed, stamped envelope, to:

BSA, Boys' Life Reading Contest
S204, P.O. Box 152079
Irving, TX 75015-2079.

Entries must be postmarked by Dec. 31, 1998.
