WrestleMania Reading Challenge

Are you a wrestling fan? Want a chance to win tickets to WrestleMania 29

in New Jersey on April 7, 2013? Then try your hand at the WrestleMania Reading Challenge!

The Rye Free Reading Room is a participating location for the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and YALSA’s (Young Adult Library Services Association) annual challenge.

Starting October 1-31st, teens and tweens in grades 5-12 can enter by writing a letter to their favorite WWE Superstar that convinces the Superstar to read their favorite book. Be creative and show your passion for the title you’ve chosen!

One entry from each grade level (5th & 6th Grades, 7th & 8th Grades, 9th-12th Grades) will be chosen by the Teen Librarian to be entered in the National Contest for a chance to win tickets to the “Showcase of the Immortals” WrestleMania 29!! We will be choosing the winners based on how persuasive you can be when trying to convince the Superstar to read your favorite book, so be REALLY convincing!

We will contact the winning entries during the month of December to let them know they’ve been sent on to the national contest. A panel of national judges will then choose 18 finalists, seven from each grade category and representing different regions of the country. The 21 finalists win a trip to WrestleMania 29 in East Rutherford, NJ to compete for special front row prize packages and a chance to be crowned “WrestleMania Reading Champion!”

To Enter:

1. Download and fill out the Official Entry Form. This must be turned in with your entry.

2. Write a short letter to your favorite WWE Superstar to try to convince him/her to read your favorite book. Your letter may be written in either English or Spanish and must be legible.

3. Drop off your Letter and Entry Form to any Adult Services desk or email them to bsurabian@ryelibrary.org by 9:00 pm on November 15,2012.
