CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Some young scholars from the Kanawha Valley had quite a reason to celebrate on Thursday.

The Bible Center School in Charleston just wrapped up a program called "Blizzard of Books" that encourages students to read aloud to their families at home.

During the program students in Kindergarten through third grade read a total of 760 hours.

The school used snowflakes to keep track of all the reading. Teachers gave each student some snowflakes. Once each student read one hour, a snowflake was placed in the school's hallway. By the end of the program, the school's hallway was covered with snowflakes.

During Thursday's celebration, First Lady Joanne Jaeger Tomblin read to the students and talked to them about the importance of reading. Then, the students got to make their own ice cream blizzard.
