>WrestleMania Reading Challenge Program


Now that summer reading programs are over, you might be looking for a hook to keep your kids reading during the school year. The WrestleMania Reading Challenge, sponsored by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) could be just the thing for your tweens and teens, grades 5-12. YALSA has put together a terrific toolkit to make it easy for you, and fun for your readers.

Registration for the WrestleMania Reading Challenge is open via the Teen Read Week Web site’s registration page. All libraries who register by July 31, 2009 will receive a free promotional poster to hang in their library featuring WWE Superstars Layla, Matt Hardy, Mr. Kennedy, and MVP. Readers are challenged to complete ten titles in their free time between Oct. 12, 2008 and Jan. 12, 2009, and must keep a log, which is part of the toolkit. When a reader submits a completed log, he/she will get a free subscription to the new WWE Kids Magazine. There is also a bookmark design contest, and winners at the local level will win a DVD from WWE. Fifteen regional bookmark winners (five each from grade categories 5 and 6, 7 and 8, and 9-12) will win $2,000 for their library and a trip to Houston to see WrestleMania 25. The grades 7 and 8 and 9-12 regional winners will also get the chance to compete to be the WrestleMania Reading Challenge National Champion. Check the Teen Read Week site for complete information.
