WWE challenges young fans

WWE kicked off its Wrestlemania XXV Reading Challenge this week for students in grades 5-12. Students read 10 books and write an essay; local libraries choose the best essay submitted. A panel of judges then select 10 finalists to go to Wrestlemania. Each finalist’s library gets a $2000 donation.

“Reading sometimes gets neglected, and what we want to do as WWE Superstars is remind teens that reading is cool and important for their future,” said Matt Hardy, one of the spokespersons for the program.

Wrestlemania XXV is scheduled for April 5 at Reliant Stadium in Houston. For more information, visit
