2019 Truckload of Books - Press Release

Sticker cropped for blogReading Month has come and gone, and so has another successful Truckload of Books contest. With one year under our belt and the support of our amazing partners, over the first few weeks of May we will be delivering 45 Tonka-size truckloads of books to teachers and students all across the state.

The random winners will receive 14 books about construction, building, architecture and engineering that best fit their classroom’s reading level. Michigan Construction's goal is to get more construction-related books into Michigan classrooms and in front of young readers. We are proud to provide these books to a range of Pre-K to 4th grade classrooms all over the state.

All of us at Michigan Construction, as well as our partners, believe it is important to get in front of children at an early age to both educate and get them excited about the possibilities of careers in the construction industry. Over the next few weeks our supporting construction companies all across Michigan will be personally visiting local classrooms to deliver the winning truckloads and engage with the kids as a special guest reader.

Without the support of our Truckload Sponsors and Free Book Sponsors, we would not have been able to give away more than four times the number of truckloads than we did in 2018. See below for a list of those sponsors as well as the 2019 Truckload of Books contest winners!
