The Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce and the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce are providing the Disney trip.

Students who read the minimum amount of books will receive certificates from the governor or others, such as the mayor of Albuquerque, as well as other prizes such as bookmarks, backpacks or a college sports poster.

Among the top prizes for winning students is the hot air balloon ride with the governor, family vacations to Ruidoso and Red River, a tour of a movie or television set in the state, meeting the coaches of the UNM and NMSU men's or women's basketball teams and free tickets to games. Other winners will throw out a ceremonial first pitch at an Isotopes baseball game or serve as a junior zookeeper at Albuquerque's zoo.
