Local News

Attention, teachers! WQLN Education invites all U.S. elementary schools within the WQLN TV & Radio listening/viewing area to join its 3rd annual free “Q-Kids Readers” Elementary School Reading Competition, September 1, 2016, through November 30, 2016.

The winning elementary school will receive a trophy and a cash prize for its library. The top-reading class will earn a pizza party. And the top-reading student will win a cool prize, too! Complete information, rules, and registration are at www.wqln.org/readers.

“WQLN Education is so pleased and proud that our ‘Q-Kids Readers’ Elementary School Reading Competition encourages kids to become avid readers and, with a little friendly competition, to have fun doing so,” said Kathy Carducci, WQLN Education Outreach Manager. “WQLN Education sees that, with just a little encouragement, students become voracious readers! WQLN Education’s ‘Q-Kids Readers’ Elementary School Reading Competition, in addition to the ‘Q-Kids Readers’ Summer Reading Race and free Book Club, are great ways to encourage these positive educational experiences.”

In 2015, WQLN Education recognized Robison Elementary School as the “Q-Kids Readers” Elementary School Reading Competition winner in the schools category, with a total of 9,300 books read by its participating students. That year, Jefferson Elementary School 2nd grade student Morgan-Anne Duncan was awarded the prize for top-reading student, with a grand total of 610 books read; and Mrs. Greenberg’s Jefferson Elementary School 2nd grade class was awarded the prize for top-reading class, with 1,828 books read!

Students are encouraged to visit “Q-Kids Readers” partner the Erie County Public Library/Blasco Library, for help finding just the right books!

WQLN Education’s “Q-Kids Readers” Elementary School Reading Competition is made possible in part by Widget Financial.

WQLN Education increases the academic potential of children by delivering educational programs and services to families, teachers, and the community at large, supporting education in the classroom and at home.
