The Dixie Power Kite Festival is designed to promote reading as a habit and encourage students to engage in family-oriented physical activity. Qualifying students earn a high-quality kite, book, or $10 voucher/ticket to be used at the Festival for their reading efforts. Also, contributions are made to the Washington County School Foundation for distribution to schools most actively involved in the kite festival based on attendance.
