WrestleMania Reading Challenge UK - WWE Revenge Tour Tickets Up For Grabs!

Wrestle Mania and The National Literacy Trust have teamed up to create a new reading challenge for KS2 and 3 pupils. Children who wish to take part are asked to read books (or magazines, comics etc). From these books, you need to choose you favourite one and then persuade a WWE Superstar or Diva to read it, be writing no more that 200 words in a persuasive passage or recording a persuasive speech, no more than one minute in length.
 
The judges are looking for high quality entries that are original, creative, clear, consider their audience and make use of persuasive language. Entries will be judged in two categories, primary and secondary. One lucky winner from each category will receive:
 
A money-can’t-buy experience at a WWE Live WrestleMania Revenge Tour event in May 2014.
A WWE merchandise pack
£50 book voucher 
 
3 runners up in each category will also win a WWE merchandise pack.
All shortlisted entries will be featured in a gallery on the National Literacy Trust website for all to see, so your pupils’ work could be read by thousands of people!
 
This reading challenge is open to pupils aged between 7 and 14, and will take place from Monday 24th February until Friday 11th April 2014 (this is during the Easter holidays, so you will need to hand your entry in to Miss Sparkes by Friday 4th April 2014).
 
If you wish to record a persuasive speech, your video will be uploaded on the school's YouTube channel for the judges to see.
