This year's program was redesigned to focus on what is what is called Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) skills in an effort to prevent kids from losing ground in those areas.

To help out, the city has partnered with the Museum of Science and Industry, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Goodman Theatre and events will include field trips.

Children can earn a pencil pouch with school and art supplies and will be eligible to win an e-reader.
