There is no shortage of books in Sara Drazkowski's fifth grade classroom at Akin Road Elementary School. There's no shortage of enthusiasm for reading, either.

That's probably what helped her class earn recognition as a Top 100 Reading Classroom in the Pizza Hut Book It! reading contest.

More than 680,000 classrooms around the United States participated in the reading incentive program, which ran from October through March.
