The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame will kick-off the New Year with an at-home reading program for students through its Tundra Tales program. Tundra Tales is designed to develop lifelong reading habits by encouraging children to read at home.
Students in grades K-5 are invited to participate and will be required to read 60 minutes per week outside of the school day for eight weeks, (a total of 480 minutes), during the weeks of Jan. 17 thru March 14.
Participants who achieve the goal will either receive two tickets to the Packers Hall of Fame or a tasty treat from Curly's Pub (Lambeau Float or Cookie Skillet Sundae).
Full details and Tundra Tales registration information can be found on the Packers Hall of Fame web site at www.lambeaufield.com.

Additionally, the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, through its Lambeau Field Trip Grant Program, is now providing assistance to qualified schools to cover transportation costs to and from Lambeau Field when taking a field trip to visit the Hall of Fame and take a Lambeau Field Stadium Tour.
Educational Lambeau Field trips give students the opportunity to embark on a storied and historical adventure. They'll relive glorious, history-changing moments and be inspired by the passion, hard work, and dedication of heroes of both long ago and today.
Schools with 40 percent or greater students that participate in the National School Lunch Program are eligible to apply.
The grant will be awarded to a limited number of schools each year and entitles the school to have their transportation costs to and from Lambeau Field paid for by the Green Bay Packers.
For full details and consideration, schools must complete the Green Bay Packers Lambeau Field Trip Grant Application, which can be found at http://www.lambeaufield.com/home/
