Join us for the Alabama Education Association's annual reading contest!

W.S. Harlan, in parternship with the Alabama Education Association, is pleased to announce our participation in the Be a Champion and Read Contest.  The goal of the program is to get students and parents excited about reading.  Students are challenged to read six reading level appropriate books to qualify for the two grand prizes: tickets to the Iron Bowl (one winner for each team) with two guests.  Each prize includes sideline passes and pre-game activities.

11 schools, one from each Inservice Center Region, with at least 75% student participation will be entered to win one of 11 $500 school library grants.  11 educators, one from each Inservice Center Region, who decorate bulletin boards, walls, or doors to promote the contest in their school will each be eligible to win $200. 

Students received a bookmark to help them get started reading and are asked to complete the required reading log. The log should be signed by the child's parent and returned to the child's homeroom teacher.  The teacher will then complete an entry card which will be mailed in order to participate in the grand prize drawing.  Our school deadline for completed entry cards is Friday, October 25.  Please visit AEA's website for downloads about the contest:  Read Your Way to the Iron Bowl
