  *   This money must be spent on only early literacy activities for children 0-6 years old and/or summer reading programs for youth 0-14 years old
  *   You are required to report on how your spend this money and the results of your  project at the end of the year (see dates below for details)
  *   You can change your project at any time, but you must get permission first-it's easy so don't hesitate to call or email me to ask for permission
