  2. Promote reading as a fundamental basis of education for every child of elementary school age.
  3. Support education with additional funding and make that funding available to selected participating schools at the discretion of the Washington County School Foundation.
  4. Patronize those members of the business community whose financial sponsorship make the Kite Festival possible.

The Dixie Power Kite Festival is designed to promote reading as a habit and encourage students to engage in family-oriented physical activity. Qualifying students earn a high-quality kite, book, or $10 voucher/ticket to be used at the Festival for their reading efforts. Also, contributions are made to the Washington County School Foundation for distribution to schools most actively involved in the kite festival based on attendance.
