Third Annual Reading Competition
SuperPawn and UNLV Athletics are teaming up with the Clark County School district (CCSD) to bring 6,500 fourth- and fifth-grade students from 32 schools to the Thomas & Mack Center for the 2013 "Rebel Reading Challenge" Kickoff Celebration.
The third annual kickoff celebration delivers the message about the importance of reading as a fundamental life skill throughout an hour of entertainment, learning and fun. The event features UNLV President Neal Smatresk, CCSD Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky with appearances from coaches of eight different UNLV sports teams, student athletes and media personalities. The event launches the "Rebel Reading Challenge," a 30-day competition designed to motivate students to read. Last year, "Rebel Reading" students read 2,393,660 pages during the course of the program. Winning classrooms receive free tickets and transportation to a UNLV men's basketball game a classroom pizza party.
