Rotary gifts dictionaries to Rochester third graders

Posted:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -

The greater Rochester Rotary is giving gifts to students this holiday season, and supporting the future of the community's workforce, as a result.

The Rotary Club is presenting 1,600 new scholastic dictionaries to third grade students in Rochester.

Tuesday, rotarians visited Sunset Terrace Elementary. 

Every third grader gets a dictionary of his or her very own.

The hope is to support literacy among students and eventually grow an educated workforce.

This is the tenth year of the Greater Rochester Rotary Dictionary project. 

NewsCenter's Jacob Murphy was helping hand out dictionaries to third grade students as well. 

He was teaching about the importance of dictionaries, while quizzing students on different words throughout the afternoon.
