WrestleMania Reading Challenge!

Starting today, October 14, 2008, you can register for WrestleMania Reading Challenge
2008-2009! WrestleMania Reading Challenge is a reading program sponsored by YALSA, Young Adult Library Services Association, and WWE, World Wrestling Entertainment, for tweens and teens. If you are a student, or know a student, in 5th-12th grade you can register to win two tickets to go to WWE WrestleMania 25 in Houston Texas.

First you register at Watha T.Daniel-Shaw Library and receive your reading log. Then you read ten books and/or magazines of your choosing. The books you read cannot be for a school assignment. After you have read the ten books turn in your reading log to receive a WrestleMania Reading Challenge mini-poster. You can also pick up the entry form for the Bookmark Contest. Design a bookmark illustrating "why reading is important"! All of the bookmarks need to be turned in by January 15th, 2009. The bookmarks are then judged. The three best bookmarks are then chosen and sent to Chicago to be judged with the other top bookmarks from across the country. The best 15 bookmarks are picked and those contestants are the ones going to WrestleMania 2009 on April 5th! For more information contact me, Tracy, the Children's Librarian here at Watha T. Daniel-Shaw Library or watch the WrestleMania Reading Challenge Video! Happy Reading!
