Cat in the Hat Going to the Dogs!
Hugh Neff, veteran Iditarod and Yukon Quest musher, is headed for Nome and carrying a piece of Americana with him. NEA-Alaska has partnered with Hugh to promote literacy and the importance of reading in our Read Across Alaska project. When Hugh and the team, including leaders Annie and Watson, reach Nome they will hand the book over to Nome Education Association President Todd Hindman. The book is a gift to the children of Nome and we hope it will excite them into reading throughout the year. This is the first time we've had a statewide project plan in place and next year we hope to expand the effort.
