WWE tag teams with NLT
This autumn, WWE is forming a tag team with the National Literacy Trust to target schools in England to prove that there is nothing weedy about reading! This year, school Reading Champions will have the chance to enter a special WWE competition to win a trip to Orlando, Fla., to see their heroes in action at WrestleMania 24.
To participate in the WrestleMania Reading Challenge, students need to read five books of their own choice, enter the book titles on the entry form provided and write 100 words explaining how they would persuade a WWE Superstar to read a book.
Each entrant who submits a form successfully via their teacher will receive a certificate from WWE celebrating their completion of the WrestleMania Reading Challenge. The entries will be judged by representatives from WWE and NLT. The winning prize is a trip to see WrestleMania 24 live in Orlando. The winners will be announced in March 2008. Four prizes will be awarded.
Throughout the last three years, WWE has been working with the NLT to promote reading in schools across England. Using posters featuring WWE Superstars, together WWE and the NLT have strived to communicate that reading is an important and enjoyable part of every day life.
