16 Oct CCSD announces partnership with High Roller at The LINQ Promenade

The Clark County School District (CCSD) School-Community Partnership Program is excited to announce a new partnership with the High Roller observation wheel at The LINQ Promenade. The partnership invites students to enter an essay and invention contest for the chance to win a grade-level field trip on the world’s tallest observation wheel to experience a behind-the-scenes tour and explore the city in a glass-enclosed cabin from 550 feet in the air during Nevada Reading Week. In addition, the winning class will be joined by the author of this year’s Each One Read One selection.

This year’s Each One Read One selection, Mr. Ferris and His Wheel by Kathryn Gibbs Davis, is about the true story of George Ferris and his invention of the Ferris wheel, which was first featured at the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. Now in its fifth year, the Each One Read One literacy initiative fosters a love for reading in the community and emphasizes the importance of reading both as individuals and as families.
