First grade student Ryan Turner and second grade student Bryanna Stevens-Hardwood are Cascade View Elementary School winners in the Bikes for Books contest.

North Bend’s Masonic Lodge donated two bikes and helmets to help promote reading, and school librarian Susan Head challenged students to read 20 minutes a day, 20 days each month. If they did, they got a free book from the library and an entry form to win a bike.

Between October and May, students turned in 1,497 entries.

“That’s 598,800-plus minutes,” Head said. “Needless to say, it was a big hit.”
